  • Dre & Em being sued...What else is NeW?

    Dr Dre and Eminem are facing a multi-million dollar lawsuit for alleged copyright infringement, according to reports.

    London music publishers, Minder Music Ltd, claim that the Dre track, 'Let's Get High', illegally samples the Minder-owned 1980 hit, 'Backstrokin', by the Fatback Band.

    'Let's Get High' (co-written by Eminem and others) features on the Dre LP, '2001', which - according to NielsenSoundscan - has sold 6.6 million copies in the US to date.

    The suit, which was filed last week in Los Angeles District Court, replaces a complaint filed in July 2000 and seeks $3.5 million in damages.

    Dre (real name Andre Young), Eminem (Marshall Mathers), Interscope Records and Universal Music & Video Distribution are amongst those named in the suit.

    Howard King, attorney for Dre, told Billboard that track in question uses a "very common" bass riff which would not be subject to copyright infringement.

    "They're seeking a ridiculous amount of money," he said.

                The suing process takes a long time, but I agree, this is a bullshit ass thing for them to do. Faggots. HOLLA
                Snoop Dogg "Nuthin but a G thang"- "You never know she could be earnin' her man, and learnin' her man/ and at the same time burning her man/ now you know i aint' with that shit Lieutenant/ ain't no pussy good enough to get burnt while I'm up in it"

                Common "sum shit I wrote": "My style is steep, I rip rhymes on the incline/ splat guts, bust fat nuts, and lay up like a crypt line."

                Eminem- "just to get to see an MC who breathes so freely/
                Ease over these beats and be so breezy/ Jesus how can shit be so easy?/ How can one Chandra be so Levy?"
