The amount of back pay Dre is demanding includes $676,444.44 for mechanical royalties, $1,200,386.57 for artist-producer royalties, and $1,179,913 for digital sales. He is also seeking funds from a bonus he expected to receive that would raise his revenue from sales of his Death Row albums from 18% to 20%.

Death Row was founded by Dr. Dre, Suge Knight, and others in 1991. Dre left the label in 1996. Death Row was later sold to WIDEawake Entertainment. The label’s catalogue was bought by current owner Entertainment One in 2013.

Afeni Shakur also filed a lawsuit against Death Row/E1 last year. The mother of the late Tupac Shakur sued for $1.1 million in royalties she said is owed to Pac’s estate.
