Snoop Dogg, Suge Knight, Dr Dre Sued for Allegedly Ripping Off ‘Ain’t No Fun’

Lawsuit claims that track from ”Doggystyle“ album infringes on another song

Well, this definitely ain’t no fun for Snoop Dogg.

Snoop Dogg is being sued, along with Nate Dogg, Dr. Dre, Warren G, Suge Knight and Kurupt, by a pair of musicians who claim that the track “Ain’t No Fun (If the Homies Can’t Have None)” from Snoop‘s 1993 album “Doggystyle,” is a ripoff of their track.

Craig Ward and Antonio White claim that they played their self-produced track “Ain’t No Fun” for former Death Row boss Knight in 1992, with Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre and Kurupt present.

The Snoop track released the following year, the suit says, “uses the title with the exact words as Plaintiffs’ work, as well as a variation.”

The complaint claims that Ward and White struck an agreement with Knight, stating that a CD would be released of their self-produced album “Volume 1 — Out to Get a Grip” — which contains “Ain’t No Fun” — in exchange for Knight obtaining the masters for the album.

Knight got the masters, the lawsuit alleges, but the deal fell apart once Ward and White heard the Snoop Dogg track.

Alleging copyright infringement and fraud, the suit seeks unspecified damages.
