In more news, Frank Ocean is being accused by TufAmerica for illegally sampling Mary J Blige’s classic his “Real Love” for his song “Rich Kids”.
The weird thing about this, is that TufAmerica owns less than 4% Mary’s song to begin with. Even stranger, over the past 3 months the company has targeted other Hip Hop artists with copyright infringement lawsuits. Find out who they are inside Tha Wire below.
Finally speaking of lawsuits, Dr. Dre is suing Death Row Records for $3 million. Radar Online reports the lawsuit is over unpaid royalties and the amount of back pay Dre is seeking includes more $600 thousand for mechanical royalties, $1 million for artist-producer royalties, and another million plus for digital sales. That’s not all, the legendary rapper/producer is also looking to recoup funds from a bonus he was supposed to get.
It should be noted that Entertainment One took over Death Row in 2013 and they own the labels entire catalog. By the way, Dr. Dre isn’t the only former Death Row rapper to file suit for unpaid royalties. Listen to Tha Wire now and find out who else is suing for back royalties.
