Rick Ross and Roc Nation Sued Over Maybach Music Tagline
Last September, Ishaq R. Muhammad, perhaps more popularly known as rapper Young Muhammad, threatened to sue Rick Ross over the rapper's use of Maybach Music tagline. Now, it appears Muhammad has finally followed through.
According to TMZ, Muhammad recently sued the Maybach Music Group boss for $9,999, claiming the rapper stole his MMG tagline from his 2007 single, "Caprice Music." The celeb news site says Ross can be heard uttering the phrase, "Caprice music" all over the track, and Muhammad apparently believes this is where Rozay got the idea to use a car—specifically, a Maybach Benz—to describe his brand of music. Muhammad, who copyrighted Caprice Music in 2006, is also suing Roc Nation for endorsing MMG since the label was created.
While getting sued isn't fun, the Bawse probably isn't sweating this one all that much. After all, it's less than $10,000, which isn't technically all that much to a multi-millionaire. Ross has yet to comment on the matter.
In other Rick Ross news, the last few weeks have seen the Florida rapper serving up some serious heat for his fans. On June 24, the rapper unloaded "Green Gucci Suit," a speaker-thumping new Future-assisted track that gave Ross fans copious amounts of what makes himself and Pluto the crowd favorites they are. Just a bit later, he linked up with Dave East for "Fresh Prince of Belaire," a track celebrating Luc Belaire, a wine brand the two rappers both act as ambassadors for. Shoutout to boss moves.
