Dr. Dre Sues Suge Knight-less Death Row Records

2/12/2010 2:26 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Dre claims it's been 14 years since he's seen a penny from his game changing record, "The Chronic" -- and he's belatedly waging a war against the new Death Row Records.

Why you ask would the good Dr. wait so long? We're guessing there's a fear factor that has evaporated since Suge Knight is out of the picture.

Dre filed the federal lawsuit against WIDEawake Death Row -- which was created after Death Row filed for bankruptcy last year.

In the lawsuit, Dre claims he stopped getting checks from the label after he cut and ran in '96.

Dre says the new Death Row has been making lots of money by selling digital copies of "Chronic," "Chronic Re-Lit" and his greatest hits album without permission.

Dre is suing for $75,000 minimum.

Yes Dre you are owed the money but one has to wonder were you that affraid of sug knight? be a man and get your money from whoever took it dont cower in a corner and hide from the big fish. But what else would you expect? easy to sing about how tough you are harder to prove you're a man.
