Rick Ross has been sued for allegedly copying his popular “Maybach Music” catchphrase from another rapper.
Young Muhammad, whose real name is Ishaq R. Muhammad, claims he worked with Ross 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 has followed through and also named Roc Nation in the suit. Muhammad is seeking a sum of $9,999.
