Dr Dre and 50 Cent sued over uncredited beat on ‘P.I.M.P.’

Producer Brandon Parrott says his track was used on the song without his knowledge

Dr Dre and 50 Cent are being sued over the beat used on ‘P.I.M.P.’.

Producer Brandon Parrott claims the track, which features on 50 Cent’s 2003 album ‘Get Rich Or Die Tryin”, uses his beat, but he has been left uncredited for it.

As Pitchfork reports, Parrott says he sent 10 to Aftermath Entertainment in 2001, including a track called ‘BAMBA’. According to the producer, it was then used two years later in ‘P.I.M.P.’


Parrots also says that he was told in 2003 that the use of his track was a mistake. He signed a settlement based on that information, but now believes he was taken advantage of.

He is now seeking compensation for the use of his beat. On the website Discogs, D12’s Denaun Porter is the only producer credited with working on ‘P.I.M.P.’

Earlier this year, Aftermath Records’ latest signing Anderson .Paak said Dre was “currently doing a lot of work” on new music.

The musician signed to Dre’s label in January and the duo have recently been working together on new music.

Anderson .Paak revealed on BBC Radio 1Xtra that Dre “still cares about the music”, despite only releasing one album of his own in the past 16 years. .Paak also claimed that Dre is “one of the realest” when discussing his relationship with the producer.
