One of Hip Hop’s most important figures, American rapper and record producer Dr. Dre has slammed US politician Marjorie Taylor Greene with a cease and desist letter after she used one of his songs in a promotional video.
Greene used Dre’s hit song Still D.R.E. in a Twitter video celebrating Kevin McCarthy’s election as speaker of the US House of Representatives.
The letter, obtained by the press, accused her of “wrongfully exploiting this work through the various social media outlets to promote your divisive and hateful political agenda.” Adding that Dre (whose real name Andre Young) “has not, and will never, grant you permission not broadcast or disseminate any of his music.”
Within hours, the video had been removed from Twitter and replaced with the message: “This media has been disabled in response to a report by the copyright owner”.
The politician fired back in a report now attempting to undermine Dre’s moral authority, referring to his background in gangsta rap, as a member of NWA and producer for artists like Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent and Eminem.
