Rick Ross and Jay Z’s Roc Nation are being sued for allegedly stealing the infamous Maybach Music tagline from another rapper, according to TMZ
Ishaq R. Muhammad, who goes by the stage name Young Muhammad, claims he and Rozay worked on “Caprice Music” together in 2007, a track that Ross was heard repeating the phrase.
Muhammad claims this birthed the “Maybach Music” catchphrase the MMG boss has been using ever since — with no credit to him.
Ross released “Maybach Music” in 2008 and subsequently launched his group using the same tagline in 2009, but Muhammad claims he trademarked “Caprice Music” in 2006.
In 2017, Muhammad threatened to sue Ross for intellectual property theft. Now, he’s followed through and also named Roc Nation in the suit. The case will go to small claims court since Muhammad is seeking a sum of $9,999.
