Hutch of Above The Law suing Dr Dre and Eve....



The founding member of Above The Law says that in December of 1997, he was introduced and hired to produce for Eve by Mike Lynn, Head of A&R for Dr. Dre's Aftermath Entertainment. In sessions between Hutch and Eve, "Love Is Blind" was allegedly one of the songs created. Hutch claims to have co-wrote and produced the track. Hutch even called in the Aftermath songtress at the time, Truth Hurts, to sing the hook and assist them in finishing up some other singing ideas they had.

"Love is Blind" co-wrote and produced by Hutch


In the two years following the early demo recordings, Eve moved from Aftermath to another Interscope Records label, Ruff Ryders. In 1999, she released Let There Be Eve...Ruff Ryders' First Lady, her multi-platinum solo debut, featuring "Love Is Blind," a song with vocal assistance by Faith Evans.

"Love is Blind" produced by Swizz Beats


Following the success of the song, Big Hutch, who was then serving as Vice President of Death Row Records during Suge Knight's incarceration, reportedly approached Aftermath executives about royalties and compensation. According to his statement, he was told, "We can't help you. You have no proof."

Hutch, who has been incarcerated several times in the last decade, kept many of his master recordings in storage. The producer recently found tapes including Eve's demo, which was recorded at the famed Larrabee Studios.



Does Big Hutch have a case???

I'm not an expert or nothin, but I'm thinking no. Just having the tape of the 1st incarnation of the song doesn't prove that he co-wrote the version that was actually released, only that he was involved in the 1st one. He'd need something in writing saying he co-wrote the material that did make it to release, which would be the lyrics since they clearly didn't use his beat.
