DJ Master Tee Files a Copyright Lawsuit Over Tupac’s ‘Dear Mama’

One of Tupac’s most timeless hits is now the focal point of a new lawsuit filed by one of its co-producers.

Music Business Worldwide reports that DJ Master Tee made the legal filing and alleges copyright infringement against Tony D.
