Snoop Dogg, Suge Knight, Dr. Dre, Nate Dogg, Kurupt and Warren G have been named in a new lawsuit, claiming they stole the 1993 classic, “Ain’t No Fun (If The Homies Can’t Have None)”.
According to TMZ, two Los Angeles rapper have filed a lawsuit, claiming they wrote the original hook for their own track, also titled “Ain’t No Fun”, which appeared on their 1991 self-produced album.
They say they played it in the studio for Suge, as well as well Snoop, Dre and Kurupt… and they all loved it. It would ultimately lead to a recording deal with Suge, where they’d turn over their version of “Ain’t No Fun”… and turn into the song that appears on Snoop’s debut album, Doggystyle.
The duo claims Suge admitted to ripping off their work in a 2013 Rolling Stone interview, saying “Ain’t No Fun” had already been recorded by “one of the homies” before he got his hands on it.
They are suing for damages and lost profits from the classic Snoop cut.
