Dr. Dre Sues Death Row for $75K

The good doctor claims he hasn’t been paid. In a recent lawsuit against former label, Death Row Records, Dr. Dre alleges he hasn’t received any royalties since dropping his last LP for the imprint, 1996’s classic disc The Chronic.

According to, the superproducer filed the suit against WIDEawake Death Row, the resuscitated version of the label that was created after the label filed for bankruptcy in 2009.

Dre says that WIDEawake has put out a greatest hits compilation, re-released The Chronic, and released a digital version of the disc without his permission. The West Coast legend is seeking $75,000 in damages.

As of press time Dre has yet to make a comment about the suit. —William Nilly
