Dr Dre Wins Lawsuit Against Death Row, Will Get 100% Of All Digital Sales Of 'The Chronic' Album

Dr Dre just won a huge lawsuit against the current owners of Death Row Records, WIDEawake Entertainment.

Yesterday (April 19), U.S. District Judge Christina Snyder ruled that Death Row doesn't have the rights to sell the classic album 'The Chronic' online.

Dr Dre will now receive 100% of all online sales, while Death Row can only sell the album in CD, cassette, 8-track and vinyl formats as stipulated by Dre's original contract with Suge Knight and the old Death Row.

"For years, Death Row Records forgot about Dre when they continued to distribute his music digitally and combined his hits with weaker Death Row tracks in an attempt to elevate the stature of their other artists," Dre's attorney Howard King told the Associated Press. "We are gratified that the federal court has unambiguously declared that Death Row has no right to engage in such tactics, and must hold all proceeds from these illicit distributions in trust for our client."
