Dr. Dre Fights For 'The Chronic'

ImageA U.S. District Court in California has agreed to hear Dr. Dre’s appeal regarding the dismissal of a lawsuit filed against Death Row Records, seeking potential millions in unpaid royalties.

According to the Associated Press, Dr. Dre, born Andre Young, seeks to determine the amount of unpaid royalties Death Row may owe since the company filed for bankruptcy protection.

The producer is seeking accounting information for his blockbuster 1992 album The Chronic.

Dr. Dre seeks to have several documents relating to the labels finances handed over by February 29, while he seeks to have representatives for the label available for deposition by March 7.

He claims that Death Row failed to properly compensate him and broke the terms of a distribution agreement when a third party began to distribute the record.
