The days of Snoop Dogg, Suge Knight and Dr. Dre being on the same side seemed like a distant memory, but thanks to 2 lesser known rappers, the 3 former key players on Death Row Records find themselves defendants in a new lawsuit over one of their classics.
The 3 aforementioned individuals, along with Nate Dogg, Kurupt and Warren G are being sued for allegedly stealing the hook to Snoop’s 1993 classic, Ain’t No Fun (If The Homies Can’t Have None) in documents obtained by TMZ. The 2 lesser known rappers allege they wrote the original hook for their own track similiarly titled, Ain’t No Fun, for their 1991 self-produced album and played it in studio for Suge.
They say Snoop, Dre and Kurupt were in the studio as well and really dug it, which led Suge signing them to record deal to further their careers, and in return, they hand over their version of Ain’t No Fun. The career part never happened, they also allege in the suit, that Suge admitted he stole their song in a 2013 Rolling Stone interview, saying “Ain’t No Fun” had already been recorded by “one of the homies” before he got his hands on it.
The two men want damages and lost profits from Snoop’s track.
