Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Georgia Republican representative, has received a formal letter from Dr. Dre asking her to stop using his music to avoid additional legal action. Dre’s lawyer Howard E. King allegedly sent the formal cease and desist notice on Monday (January 9), giving her two working days to take down any unapproved uses of the song “Still D.R.E.” from her social media sites.
The scathing letter came after Marjorie Taylor Greene posted a video of herself going through Congress while Dr. Dre’s 1999 hit played in the background on Monday. In it, King chided Green for breaking the rules outlined in the U.S. Constitution.
“I don’t license my music to politicians, especially someone as divisive and hateful as this one,” the multi-platinum artist told T.M.Z. after learning of the post that his music had been used without his permission.
Greene was given until Wednesday (January 11) at the close of business by Dr. Dre’s legal team to take down the post and respond in writing. The post was taken down when Dre’s camp contacted Twitter before mailing the cease and desist letter. With the phrase “The next episode.,” Marjorie Taylor Greene responded by sending the Aftermath executive a statement to T.M.Z.
