Game’s “R.E.D. Album” May Be Held Up By Lawsuit

Desperado Entertainment filed a lawsuit yesterday (June 22) against Aftermath Records, Interscope, Universal Music Group and ARY, Inc., a company run by Dr. Dre, claiming that it discovered Game and are owed royalties from his recordings.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the suit, which was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, alleges that Universal Music Group broke a previous agreement with Desperado Entertainment and has been collecting publishing and royalties from the West Coast rapper’s sales, when they were only entitled to advances from record sales. The company claims that it had a large hand in turning the Compton-native into the platinum selling artist that he is today, and wants to be properly compensated.

Desperado Entertainment states that it is owed royalties from the sales of previous Game albums. He has sold over five million records in his career.

In addition, the law suit seeks to prevent the release of Game’s upcoming The R.E.D. Album, which is currently slated to drop on August 24. —Adam Fleischer
