Lawyers who processed the bankruptcy case for Death Row Records should be all smiles after raking in $8.3 million for their work, but the artists who made the label a fortune walked away with little or nothing.
Dr. Dre ($8 million), Snoop Dogg ($2 million) and the estate of Nate Dogg ($5 million) received none of the money they were owed.
Former CEO, Suge Knight, asked for an astounding $144 million. He didn’t get a penny either.
TMZ reports that Tupac Shakur’s estate was awarded $75,000 of the $900,000 the late music icon was owed and could get an additional $57,000.
A judge has to sign off on the final report, but that’s expected to be a formality.
