EXCLUSIVE: Snoop Dogg – Blasts Allegations He Ripped off Two Unknown Rappers for 90’s Hit
The Dirty can exclusively reveal Snoop Dogg is blasting two unknown rappers accusing him of ripping off their music … with the rapper heading to court demanding their suit be thrown out of court.
Antonio White and Craig Ward – both L.A. rappers – sued Snoop Dogg, Suge Knight, Dr. Dre, Nate Dogg and Warren G over the classic Snoop song, “Ain’t No Fun (If The Homies Can’t Have None)”.
The men wrote a track titled, “Ain’t No Fun” back in 1991 and played it in the studio for Suge Knight, Snoop and Dre.
According to the docs, Snoop and Dre loved the track which lead to Suge working out a deal with the unknown rappers. He promised them a record deal and said he would promote their careers … which never happened. The suit pointed out to a 2013 Rolling Stone interview in which he was quoted as saying “Ain’t No Fun” had already been recorded by “one of the homies” before he heard it. The rappers sued for unspecified damages and lost profits.
Then on Feburary 14th, Snoop Dogg headed to court blasted the unknown musician’s lawsuit … denying he infringed on any copyright and demanded the case be thrown out of court. The rapper claims the plaintiffs don’t even own a valid copyright for the song they claim they wrote. He says the lawsuit is nonsense and he doesn’t owe the rappers a dime.
