Be careful the name you choose in this rap game. High-end automaker Rolls-Royce is suing an Atlanta rapper, and Jermaine Dupri artist, named Rolls Royce Rizzy.
According to the lawsuit — obtained by TMZ — the legendary car company says Rizzy advertises and sells “Team Rolls Royce” shirts on his website … and they want him to stop ASAP.
Rolls-Royce claims they’ve sent R.R.R. multiple cease and desist letters to no avail … and since he’s continued to wear the shirts in pics on social media they’ve been forced to file suit.
Rizzy tells us he dropped the “Rolls” from his name at least a year and a half ago and he’s no longer selling the shirts … just wearing it. He also claims he’s never gotten a letter from Rolls.
Our advice, stop wearing the tees and chalk up this news as free advertising. Emphasis on free, because we’re guessing Rolls-Royce’s lawyers ain’t playing.
