Dr. Dre criticized Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene after she released a promotional video set to the beat of his song “Still D.R.E.,” apparently without his consent.

The Georgia lawmaker used the lyric-free beat of the song in her promotional social media video, which shows her walking through the halls of Congress and interacting with colleagues. Dr. Dre made it clear to TMZ that he didn’t want to be associated with Greene in any way, and said he didn’t authorize her to use his music.

“I don’t license my music to politicians, especially someone as divisive and hateful as this one,” he told the outlet.

The lyrics of “Still D.R.E.” are X-rated and deemed by many to reflect one of several misogynistic hits produced by Dr. Dre. The lyrics repeatedly refer to women as “bitches” and tell the tale of a man’s ability to sexually exploit and overpower his female counterparts.

The famous artist and music mogul has faced criticism for the nature of his lyrics, and has a long history of abuse allegations from multiple women. He has since acknowledged and apologized for his behavior.

“Twenty-five years ago, I was a young man drinking too much and in over my head with no real structure in my life,” Dr. Dre said during an apology issued to Rolling Stone in 2015.

“I made some fucking horrible mistakes in my life. I was young, fucking stupid. I would say all the allegations aren’t true — some of them are. Those are some of the things that I would like to take back,” Dr. Dre said.
