7. Rosa Parks sues OutKast

What happens when you name-check a hero in a classic song on a now-classic album? You get Johnnie Cochran to sue your ass. That’s exactly what happened when civil rights legend Rosa Parks took OutKast to court for the song, “Rosa Parks,” off of their classic 1999 album Aquemini. Parks sicced Cochran on the duo thanks to the line “Ah ha, hush that fuss. Everybody move to the back of the bus. Do you want to bump and slump with us? We the type of people make the club get crunk.” The recently-reunited pair settled with Parks for an undisclosed sum, and agreed to work with the Rosa and Raymond Parks Institute For Self Development.
