    ARE We being PUNKED????”

  • tb

    Did the real Rick Ross have his name copyright?

  • Niasia

    Ok since when did drug dealers copyright their names? Is he in SAG or something…man how you gonna sue over a name…rick and ross are two very common names. Come on son…

  • champhf

    he used his street credit and name so its time to pay up….!!!

  • DeevaC

    hmmm this could possibly set a legal precedence in the music business…if the real rick ross wins this case, this could lead to law suits from other gangster/drug dealers (or the drug dealers/gangsters families)…no more gotti’s, capone’s, etc.

    should be interesting. i mean rick ross not only stole this man’s name but his beard and image.

    Interesting court case indeed!

    Makes you wonder whether the industry heads will even let it see the light of day in court for that same reason.

  • DeevaC

    @b3

    i don’t think this will make it to court, he’ll probably settle…if it does make it to court, i’m sure this case will be full or appeals.

  • DeevaC

    @b3

    i don’t think this will make it to court, he’ll probably settle…if it does make it to court, i’m sure this case will be full of* appeals.

  • Mock Rock Star

    I have no sympathy for a known drug-dealer. The judge needs to throw this case out

  • LuvN_Life

    LOL @ bylaw99 ha haha ha ha ha ha ha ha
    you are correctO”

  • just sayin

    I hope this mess get thrown out of court — wastin taxpayer dollars on this nonsense — gtfoh — these a**es need 2 grow up!

  • B3 Fearless

    @DeevaC

    He’ll definitely be seeing a check tho.

  • Truth Tella

    Do you know how many Rick Ross’s came before this drug kingpin? So can they sue him too cause he glorified their name in a negative way?…GET OVER IT THIS IS THE DUMBEST LAWSUIT EVER!! Its all about trynna GET IN A CELEBS POCKET!!

  • bklyn lady

    This case will be thrown out for sure. If it’s not his legal name….if he didn’t copyright the name Rick Ross then it’s his lost. I personally feel you should pay homage and give him something as did 50 cent did with the real 50 cents family…..he met with them and paid for a headstone on 50’s grave…if you are going to rep. a ganagta then do it right and with RESPECT to that person.

  • drenk

    how can you sue for name stealing? is this like that one law suit, where a guy sued david blaine, claimin david blaine stole his “powers”

  • PW

    Slim Shady will be the judge during the trial and he will say: “Will the real RICK ROSS please stand up”

  • ErycaK

    Actually, this will either settle or make it to court.. I’m not sure if any of you remember ‘Prince’ spaghetti or sauce, anywho, the company sued Prince the artist for using their name and won which is why he changed his name to an Unpronoucable sign.

  • SMH

    This is so stupid. Don’t waste your money bro.

  • SMH

    ErycaK- What are you talking about? lol The Symbol was for something else. lol

  • DeevaC

    yea…as i recall prince said he changed his name due to some sort of dispute he had with his record label that he left…i guess there was something in the contract the stated warner would get a percentage of his record sales if he recorded under the name prince.

  • The Bear

    I wonder if 50 cent is behind this too… But then again I doubt it cause he stole his stage name from a drug dealer too.
