If you’re on track to becoming the first billionaire in Hip Hop does losing a $3 million lawsuit really dampen your day? That is the situation Dr. Dre now finds himself.
Dre filed a lawsuit against his former label Death Row for $3 million. The legendary producer and businessman was seeking compensation for back payments from mechanical royalties, artist-producer royalties, digital sales, and other items.
A trustee in charge of Death Row’s bankruptcy case filed a motion to have the suit dismissed on the grounds Dre already sought money from a previously settled lawsuit and the statute of limitations for further legal proceedings had run out.
TMZ reports the judge handling the case ruled in favor of Death Row and has thrown out Dr. Dre’s latest lawsuit.
