Dr. Dre Slams Marjorie Taylor Greene for Using 'Still D.R.E.' In Promo Video

The producer says he did not give the politician authorization to use the song in the video.

On Monday (Jan. 9), Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) posted a video celebrating her role in helping Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) win the House Speaker election, after several days of him falling short of the votes needed. In the video, Greene used Dr. Dre's song "Still D.R.E," which confused many folks. 

The iconic opening chords of the Dre and Snoop Dogg classic begin to play as Green appears in slow-motion showing her triumphantly going through the corridors of Congress. The video eventually includes shots that were taken on the House floor of Greene appearing to text Donald Trump.

 It should come as no surprise that Dr. Dre wasn't pleased with the news of his song being used without his authorization. And he didn't mince his words about it. 

“I don’t license my music to politicians, especially someone as divisive and hateful as this one,” the producer told TMZ Monday morning.

Dre did not say what he plans on doing about the video or what his options are.
