According to a TMZ report, two L.A. rappers (their names were not released) are suing Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Suge Knight, Warren G, Kurupt and the estate of Nate Dogg for stealing the hook to the song “Ain’t No Fun (If the Homies Can’t Have None)” from Snoop Dogg’s 1993 debut album, Doggystyle.
The two rappers claim that they wrote the hook for their own song, titled “Ain’t No Fun,” which was going to appear on their own self-produced album. Apparently they played it for Suge, Snoop and Kurupt, and they handed the track over in return for record contracts and promotion deals from Suge, but they claim he never followed through on his promises.
The duo are suing Snoop and the rest of guys for damages and lost profits. That would be quite a lot of money, seeing as the album itself has gone 4x platinum. “Ain’t No Fun (If the Homies Can’t Have None)” is definitely one of the classic tracks off Snoop’s first album, and it would be a shame if he really did rip off the song from this duo.
