No details of the settlement, which is not yet finalized, were filed with the court.
In April a judge ruled that WIDEawake Death Row Records didn’t have the proper permission to sell Young’s music online or repackage it on new CD releases. The label purchased the holdings of original Death Row Records, which launched the careers of several rappers, out of bankruptcy.
He sued WIDEawake Death Row in 2010 for breach of contract, trademark infringement and misappropriation of his likeness.
Young was a co-founder of the label, but negotiated a deal to leave the company that required Death Row to obtain his permission before selling his music digitally. On Monday, “The Chronic” was no longer available for download on Apple’s popular music service iTunes.
There was no immediate comment from attorneys for either Young or WIDEawake Death Row.
