Lamar sued Dre and Iovine back in 2006, claiming he was owed money from the sale of the headphones. Dr. Dre and Iovine reached a settlement with Lamar where he receives 4% royalties on sales of certain Beats headphones.

Fast forward to earlier this year, Beats sued Lamar claiming he was falsely advertising he was a co-founder of the headphone company along side Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine. Lamar had launched his own headphone company and was promoting his line by stating he was the co-founder of Beats.
