Settlement Reached In Lawsuit Between Dr. Dre & WIDEawake Death Row Records

A lawsuit against WIDEawake Death Row Records that stems from unauthorized digital sales is dropped thanks to a settlement.

Producer/rapper Dr. Dre and WIDEawake Death Row Records will no longer have to appear in court today (June 7) due to a settlement that was reached earlier in the week.

The Washington Post reports that prior to the settlement the famed producer planned on suing the label for 100 percent of the profits from online sales of his album The Chronic.

According to Dr. Dre, WIDEawake’s sales of The Chronic were unauthorized and although Dr. Dre is no longer at Death Row Records he agreed to a deal that would require the company to get his consent to sell his music digitally.

It is still unclear the type of settlement that was reached in the case, but The Chronic is no longer for sale on iTunes or Amazon.

Death Row Records was acquired by WIDEawake Entertainment, a Canadian based entertainment company, back in February 2009.

      It was probably a closed bid auction where you had to put up so much non-refundable cash, #1. Number 2, y'all cats keep believing all these rap cats got cash like that... they doing okay, but not like you would think.
