Dre Has Something To Say About MTG

Iconic rapper and producer Dr. Dre is not pleased with Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene using his music

Dr. Dre's legal team have confronted Congressional House representative Marjorie Taylor Greene regarding her use of the artist's music, issuing a formal cease and desist letter that includes a deadline of two business days to remove any and all uses of the song "Still Dre" across Greene's social media accounts. This follows the politician sharing a Twitter video of her strolling through the Congress building with the Dre's hit song in the background.

Before the cease and desist order was sent, Dre's team had contacted Greene Twitter to have Greene's post removed, an action that elicited a response from the House representative on the social media site. "I would never play your words of violence against women and police officers, and your glorification of the thug life and drugs," her post read. The letter, written by Dre's attorney Howard E. King, to Greene from Dre includes admonishment towards the Congresswoman for using his music to perpetuate a "divisive and hateful political agenda.” "“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," King's letter reads. Greene has until the end of the work day on Wednesday, January 11 to have any acknowledge the request in writing and remove any posts using Dr. Dre's music.
