Dr. Dre settled his lawsuits against the cities of Detroit and Auburn Hills after the rapper took them to court of censorship of his shows at Joe Louis Arena. The settlement has the cities to reimburse Dre for legal fees in which Detroit will pay $25,000, and Auburn Hills will pay $28,000. As well, Dr. Dre will receive written apologies from Mayor Dennis Archer and the City of Auburn Hills, and First Amendment training for police officers in each city, according to Dre’s lawyer, Herschel Fink.
Saturday Night Live special guest and former cast member Colin Quinn sounded off on Dr. Dre in his Weekend Update appearance last night saying, ” A lot of celebrities are also doing their part. Dr. Dre put up $1 million. I’m not a rapper and I say that because people mistake me. What are the odds that rhyme Osama and your momma?”
A spokesperson at Interscope Records tells Launch.com that Dr. Dre’s response track to bin Laden following the terror attacks in the United States is not scheduled for release. He says Dre regularly makes such records for himself, and does not know if the song will ever be released.
In my opinion, look for a track like this to get leaked on the internet, similar to Eminem’s beef with Everlast played out.
Davey D of Daveyd.com is reporting that Dr. Dre “wants to express the anger and outrage many are feeling with regard to terrorism” in a menacing rhyme directed at terror kingpin Osama bin Laden.
Launch.com reports Dr. Dre’s “Bad Intentions” will be the first single released off “The Wash” soundtrack. The film stars Dre, Snoop Dogg, and George Wallace.
Look for the soundtrack to hit record stores Tuesday, November 6 and the movie Wednesday, November 14.
MTV talked to Timbaland where the producer revealed he’s been talking to Dr. Dre about doing a “Dr. Dre/Timbaland album.” Timbaland says, “Dre has kept it under wraps, I kept it under wraps. He was going to get a couple of other [producers] like [Jermaine Dupri], but I really think it should be me and him. We’ve been talking about it for the last two months. We’ll pick artists we feel like we should do the beats for and put it out and promote it.”
In response to the terrorist attacks that happened in the United States last Tuesday, Dr. Dre has pledged $1 million to help with the relief efforts, reports Launch.com.
