Dr Dre has found yet another distraction to keep him from completing Detox, the album that’s fast turning into hip-hop’s version of Guns N’ Roses’s Chinese Democracy.

Dre filed a lawsuit against his former label, Death Row, over the rights to his 1992 album The Chronic.

The superstar producer claims the label breached the terms of a 1996 deal by failing to fulfil royalty commitments.

Seeing as Death Row has filed for bankruptcy, Dre’s move is seen as a bid to stop the album falling into the hands of a third party.
