The renown rapper Rick Ross was allowed to keep his stage name after fighting ex drug lord Freeway Rick Ross in court. Rick Ross received a lawsuit from the former drug-lord for name infringement. Judge Roger Boren who handled the case had this to say, “We recognize that Robert’s work-his music and persona as a rap-musician-relies to some extent on plaintiff’s name and persona. Roberts chose to use the name ‘Rick Ross’. He raps about trafficking in cocaine and brags about his wealth. These were ‘raw materials’ from which Roberts’ music career was synthesized. But these are not the ‘very sum and substance’ of Roberts’ work.” Please check out Robert’s latest hit single featuring Jay-Z, The Devil Is A Lie.
