Nate Dogg Files Suit Against Suge, Seeking Unpaid Royalties

nate-dogg.jpgNate Dogg has filed suit against former Death Row Records head Suge Knight, seeking no less than $10 million in unpaid royalties. According to court documents posted on thesmokinggun.com, Nate claims that Suge has repeatedly refused to provide an account of unpaid royalties and that he lied to and threatened Nate Dogg when the Death Row head filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last year. Nate states he was unaware of a September 2006 deadline to file a claim against Knight. In his suit, Nate D-O-double-G also claims that he cannot recall if he ever signed a contract with Suge or Death Row surrendering his royalties, but that if he did, it was still Suge’s responsibility to collect and distribute royalties.

    1st bitches..

  • Who cares anymore

    Good luck. Suge is broke, and with all of these extra lawsuits he will soon be living on the street. It serves him right, but I feel for the people that he owes money to.

    Po’ Nate Dogg, doesnt remember ever signing his name on the dotted line huh? serves you right you are a grown ass man nigga, real men handle their business. Dont blame Suge for taking your paper blame your own dumb ass. Every tom, dick and harry knows the music game is a racket. You should have went and got legal representation before signing any contract. Let this be a lesson for all you young and upcoming cats, never sign away your publishing and read everything before you sign.

  • sadiiq el

  • Galil ( Never forget 2pac 1971-1996)

    Hmmmm maybe Nate were smokin 2 much weed that day or Suge did something 2 him that day. R.I.P. Death Row Records
    R.I.P. 2pac, B.I.G. & other fallen souljas.

    on one side Nate has been only one of the top artist formerly on Death Row to establish it as a major label and he should be payed his dues. On the other side, due to irresponsible legal work on Nate’s behalf and insufficient funds on Suge’s part, brotha might have to charge that to da game. Besides, look how far you’ve come- you da undisputable NATE DOGG!!!

    Suge is a snake and everything he touched, he ran into the ground. It’s amazing that he could have arguably the best producer ever (Dre) and arguably the best rapper ever (Tupac) as well as Snoop on his roster and not pay them what they were worth. He could skimp on role players like Nate, Dogg Pound, Jewell, but when it comes to your franchise artists, not paying them–that’s crazy. That’s like the Miami Heat not paying Shaq and D. Wade.

    If I recall Nate Dogg advance was 10,000.
    Personally I think sign something. Snoop signed over his publishing. At the time when Death Row was hot, I knew nothing about publishing. Suge did a lot niggas dirty. Now as far is Nate Dogg…I got love him. That nigga was like Akon back in the day.
