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.”
According to the suit, obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, “The phrase is so important to the success of ‘Party Rock Anthem,’ that LMFAO launched a highly successful clothing line, Party Rock Clothing, that features the phrase on T-shirts and other clothing items.”
The rapper, is reportedly seeking an injunction and maximum statutory damages.

He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.“
“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”
In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.
“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”
