Rick Ross Sued For Allegedly Stealing "Maybach Music" Tagline

Rick Ross is being sued for allegedly copying his famous “Maybach Music” tagline from another rapper, according to TMZ.

Young Muhammad, whose real name is Ishaq R. Muhammad, claims he worked with Rozay on “Caprice Music,” a 2007 record on which Ross can be 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 the JAY-Z-assisted “Maybach Music” in 2008 and launched his Maybach Music Group imprint 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.

Rozay and his team have yet to respond.
