Posted By on February 10, 2014


Dr. Dre has been bringing in mega bucks lately with his “Beats by Dre line and just recently released his “Beats Music” online streaming service. Although Dre is bringing in the dough, he is still about his money as reports claim he is going after “Death Row Records” for over $3 million.

According to reports, Dr.Dre is going after the record label due to unpaid royalties. Dre says he is owed $1,200,386.57 for unpaid artist-producer royalties, $1,179,913 from digital sales and $676,444.44 for unpaid mechanical royalties.

“The producer says that he is owed $1,200,386.57 in unpaid artist-producer royalties, $1,179,913 from digital sales and $676,444.44 for unpaid mechanical royalties. The digital sales amount is based on a judge’s suggestion after Dr. Dre lost a 2010 trademark infringement suit, the story says.” (HipHopDx)
