Dre stares Death Row in the face

A long-bubbling bout of disagreement between Dr Dre and Death Row Records is heading for the courts: Dre claims the now-bankrupt label is touting rights for The Chronic to raise funds; he wants rights to the record back claiming that his deal allowing the label to keep exploiting the title had been broken when Death Row failed to pay him royalties.

The courts are having to decide if a dead man locked in Eminem's basement can, legally, sue a defunct record label.
