He helped create Death Row Records with Suge Knight. But now, Dr. Dre is suing the new version of the label -- over royalties he says he's owed. Besides, Dre claims the new label has put out a new version of his album "The Chronic" without his permission. Dre's suit is filed in Los Angeles federal court against WIDEawake Death Row Records and its parent companies.

Death Row was once one of the top labels in the rap game, but it eventually fell into bankruptcy. It was since bought by WIDEawake and re-formed.
