Seconds For Snoop Dogg
LOS ANGELES (AP) _ A musician already suing rapper Snoop Dogg filed a second lawsuit in federal court alleging copyright infringement over a song on the new Snoop Dogg and the Eastsidaz album.
Francisco Rodriguez says the rapper, born Calvin Broadus, took the music for the song “Dogghouse” from a cassette tape given to another member of his group.
The suit was filed Wednesday in federal court. Snoop Dogg attorney Hayes Michael declined to comment Thursday.
Rodriguez first sued the rapper in August 1999 for copyright infringement, alleging three pieces from that cassette were lifted for two underground music videos and the song, ”20 Minutes,” released on the Topp Dogg album. That case is set for trial Nov. 7.
