Jay-Z suing Australian children’s bookstore over use of his image and lyrics: report

“You some type of lawyer or something? Somebody important or something?”

Jay-Z is suing a small web-based shop in Sydney, Australia, called The Little Homie, according to the New York Times. The item that sparked the lawsuit is a book  called “A B to Jay-Z” which repurposes a line from the rapper’s famous song “99 Problems” as “If you’re having alphabet problems I feel bad for your son, I got 99 problems but my ABCs ain’t one.”

The book features Jay’s likeness, as well as those of other rappers like Biggie Smalls and  Eminem 영화 무사 다운로드. It was released two years ago and Little Homie — which said it was hoping to inspire “the next generation of hood rats” — says it sold out within days, according to the Times iPhone app. Other titles offered by Little Homie include “First 50 Words With 50 Cent” and “1 2 3 With the Notorious B.I.G.”
