New tracks that DJs should know about.
Rapper Rick Ross has filed copyright infringement lawsuit against LMFAO over their 2010 hit single, “Party Rock Anthem.”
LMFAO’s chart-topper contains the lyrics “Everyday I’m shufflin'” which Ross claims is an illegal “derivative” of his phrase, “Everyday I’m hustlin’,” from his 2006 debut single.
Rick Ross says his phrase was important to the success of “Party Rock Anthem” which has sold 7.5 million copies and been licensed for numerous films, television programs, video games and more.
The lawsuit comes two weeks after Ross’ victory in a dispute with “Freeway” Ricky Ross. The famed drug dealer claimed Rick Ross’ persona was partly based on his likeness.
