Rick Ross and Roc Nation are being sued by a rapper named Young Muhammad over the “Maybach Music” tagline, TMZ reports.
Muhammad claims that Ross ripped the idea for the tagline from his 2007 song “Caprice Music,” in which the Maybach Music CEO can be heard saying the phrase repeatedly. Muhammad threatened to sue Ross back in September, but now he’s taking him to small claims court for theft of his intellectual property. He’s reportedly seeking $9.999. He’s also suing Roc Nation for endorsing “Maybach Music.”
