Adding the letter Dr. Dre’s attorney sent to Marjorie Taylor Greene. It includes some gems like “We’re writing because we think an actual lawmaker should be making laws not breaking laws,” and “Demand is hereby made that you cease and desist from any further unauthorized use of Andre Young’s music.”
Early on Monday, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, best known for harassing people all over Washington, D.C., and now all over America, posted a pretty weak sauce video to her Twitter account, ripping the music of the famous Dr. Dre hip-hop song Still Dre. When asked for his opinion on the matter, Dr. Dre stated clearly he had not authorized the use of his music, and the last person in the world he would authorize would be someone “as divisive and hateful as this one (MTG)."
TMZ is now reporting that Dr. Dre had his legal team take some action, asking Twitter to take the video down. And then guess what happened: Greene says she was locked out of her account. Oh no! Free speech disrupter Elon Musk continues his scattershot leadership! Greene, clearly feeling sad-faced emoji about how people truly detest her, no matter how much money she has and how much power she wields, told the gossip news site, "While I appreciate the creative chord progression, I would never play your words of violence against women and police officers, and your glorification of the thug life and drugs."
But you didn’t pick the song because you liked the chord progression, Marjorie. You picked it because of all the machismo and coolness and cultural currency it has. Otherwise you would have to choose between a Ted Nugent song (that hasn’t been cool since people were doing too many quaaludes), and a Kid Rock ditty (who was never actually talented or cool).
