Why Rick Ross Is Suing LMFAO!

Published

on

Looks like Rick Ross and LMFAO will be “shufflin” to court because according to a recent lawsuit, the Miami rapper and Jermaine Jackson (co-producer) are going after the “Sexy And I Know It” duo over the lyrics, ‘Everyday I’m shufflin.’

According to Ross, the electronic-pop duo (Stefan Kendal Gordy and Skyler Austen Gordy) used the line for their 2010 track, “Party Rock Anthem” without “authorization.” The rapper claims that he first used the popular lyric in his 2006 hit “Hustlin.” But if you are familiar with the song, you’ll know that Ross actually says, ‘Everyday I’m hustlin.’

The document states that, “The use of ‘Hustlin’ in ‘Party Rock Anthem’ is readily apparent, despite the slight change from ‘Everyday I’m hustlin” … to ‘Everyday I’m shufflin” … and constitutes, inter alia, the creation of an unauthorized derivative work.”

The rapper, is reportedly seeking an injunction and maximum statutory damages.
