Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene posted a video with the background of Dr. Dre’s music, promoting herself as one of the power figures. Dr. Dre seemingly expressed his disappointment to TMZ about her using the video.
He stated, “I don’t license my music to politicians, especially someone as divisive and hateful as this one,” Rep. Greene responded, “While I appreciate the creative chord progression, I would never play your words of violence against women and police officers and your glorification of the thug life and drugs,”
Today Rapper’s lawyer sent a cease-and-desist letter to Rep. Greene. Dre says that she doesn’t has the license to use the songs. She is accused of “wrongfully exploiting” his music “to promote [a] divisive and hateful political agenda.” Additionally, the letter said that her use of the song was a copyright infringement.
“One might expect that, as a member of Congress, you would have a passing familiarity with the laws of our country. It’s possible, though, that laws governing intellectual property are a little too arcane and insufficiently populist for you to really have spent much time on,” the letter continued.
The song has an iconic piano riff from Still D.R.E., which was a massive hit.
The Rapper is concerned because she has a history of sharing far-right conspiracy theories.
As a result of the complaint from the Rapper, the video has been removed. Additionally, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has lost access to her account temporarily.
She has a key role in securing the speakership for Kevin McCarthy. Greene defended and voted for Kevin.
