E! reports a London-based music publisher has filed a federal copyright infringement lawsuit against Dr. Dre and Eminem for allegedly sampling a song sans permission. Minder Music Ltd. claims a 1980 tune called ‘Backstrokin’ is the backbone for Dre’s 1999 hit ‘Let’s Get High,’ according to a report in Billboard. The company is seeking more than $3.5 million in damages against the hip-hopsters, accusing them of unfairly profiting from its song by ripping it for Dre’s biggest single off his 1999 multiplatinum release, ‘2001’.
