Dr. Dre finally breathe a sigh of relief after winning a lawsuit against “the new” Death Row Records. Dr. Dre sued WIDEawake Death Row Records last year claiming that the company was using his music on compilation albums without his permission and “improperly selling his 1992 debut selling classic album ‘The Chronic'” digitally. Howard King, Dr. Dre’s lawyer said, “”For years, Death Row Records forgot about Dre when they continued to distribute his music digitally and combined his hits with weaker Death Row tracks in an attempt to elevate the stature of their other artists.” After hearing the case, U.S. District Judge Christina Snyder ruled that Dr. Dre has not received all the money he has been due. Judge Snyder also determined that Dre and will also receive 100% of the online profits.
After hearing the ruling attorney King said to the media, “We are gratified that the federal court has unambiguously declared that Death Row has no right to engage in such tactics, and must hold all proceeds from these illicit distributions in trust for our client.”
But the bigger question is; does “Dre Day make Eazy’s pay day?”
