Dr. Dre and 50 Cent Sued By Producer | Music News
Rappers Dr. Dre and 50 Cent have been embroiled in fresh controversy, following news that a music producer is taking legal action against them over the 2003 hit “P.I.M.P”. Beat maker, Brandon Parrott, alleges that the two musicians, then affiliated with Dre’s label Aftermath Entertainment, used an instrumental track from a mixtape without permission.
Aftermath settled with Parrott at the time, citing an “honest mistake”, though the latter is now re-launching legal action after claiming that the label misled him intentionally and deliberately withheld royalties.
Dre’s legal battle comes in the wake of April’s news that former N.W.A manager, Jerry Heller, had filed a defamation lawsuit against the group for his portrayal in last year’s film Straight Outta Compton.
