Dr. Dre and Eve are heading to court for a lawsuit over royalties from the Faith Evans collaboration, “Love Is Blind,” which a producer claims he created and wrote and was never paid.
Music producer Big Hutch claims he co-wrote and produced the single in 1997 for Eve, who was then signed to Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment. But when Eve finally recorded the track two years later for her album “Let There Be Eve… Ruff Ryders’ First Lady,” he was never compensated or rewarded due to lack of evidence he had anything to do with the tune.
Big Hutch, real name Gregory Hutchinson, he is now suing to reclaim his share of royalties.
“I’m not trying to take away from what Eve has done, but I was a key in helping Eve create a hit record,” he said in a statement to AllHipHop.com.
