Snoop Dogg Settles With Priority Records

LATEST: Rapper SNOOP DOGG has finally reached a settlement with his former record label bosses.
The Signs hitmaker - real name Calvin Broadus - filed suit against the label in 2006, accusing Priority Records of failing to pay up $2 million (GBP1 million) in outstanding royalties.
He also claimed he had yet to receive a $950,000 (GBP475,000) advance for his 2000 album Tha Last Meal, while Priority failed to consult him over the greatest hits LP The Best of Snoop Dogg, which they released without his consent in October 2005.
On Wednesday (09Apr08), both parties resolved the dispute.
David Steinberg, a lawyer acting on behalf of Priority Records, would not release details of the settlement, but confirmed both parties were satisfied.
He says, "I don't believe a settlement would have been reached unless both sides were happy."
Snoop Dogg is now signed to Geffen/Interscope Records.
