Icon Rapper Dr. Dre Not Happy With MTG; “I Do Not License My Music To Politicians”

After Marjorie Taylor Greene published a peculiar video in which she celebrated Kevin McCarthy’s win in finally being voted Speaker of the House, at least one person was not pleased with the song that she sampled in the backdrop of the film as background music.

Slow-motion footage of Greene leaving her office and moving through the corridors of Congress can be seen in the video that Greene shared to Twitter. In the background of the clip is a looping version of a section of Dr. Dre’s song Still D.R.E., which plays continuously.

She tweeted out the following message along with the video: “It’s time to begin.. and they can’t stop what’s coming.”

The film came to a close with a black-and-white montage showing Greene’s “eleventh hour” phone chat with former President Donald Trump, as well as footage of McCarthy successfully gaining the speaker post on the 15th vote.

On Monday, when the video began to spread online and racked up more than 860,000 views, however, there was one individual who did not participate in the excitement: Dr. Dre.

Dr. Dre told TMZ earlier on Monday, “I do not license my music to politicians, especially someone as divisive and disgusting as this one,” and he made this statement in reference to President Trump.

The video was removed off Greene’s Twitter early in the afternoon on Monday “in response to a report by the copyright owner,” according to the tweet. It is not apparent whether or not the rapper will pursue legal action in response to the video. In the version of the video that Greene released, the music did not have a credit attached to it.
