Hovvy Hov is being accused of robbing another man’s rhyme style:
“Former heavyweight boxer Mitchell Rose is planning to file an $88 million dollar copyright lawsuit against Jay-Z in Brooklyn Federal Court. According to Rose, he gave Jay-Z his demo tape on March 12, 2001, following a bout between William Joppy and Felix Trinidad.
He was shocked to discover that Jay-Z allegedly stole his style of rhyming, delivery and even certain lyrics. ‘He took the style and the delivery,’ Rose told [said]. ‘He’s using it on the regular, now Lil’ Kim is using it. All I want is justice. Jay-Z knows what I am talking about.'”
This should be interesting: Rhyme style analysis in court. $88 million is a pretty steep fee. This cat says he wants justice, but it’s obvious he just wants to get paid.
