Rick Ross Files Copyright Infringement Lawsuit Against LMFAO

Rick Ross suing LMFAO over the pair's alleged use of "Hustlin'" on their 2010 single, "Party Rock Anthem."

With the start of the new year, Los Angeles-based duo LMFAO have found themselves at the center of a lawsuit filed by rapper Rick Ross and producer Jermaine "Mayne Zayne" Jackson of The Runners. According to HollywoodReporter.com, both Ross and Jackson are suing the pair for copyright infringement due to their 2010 single, "Party Rock Anthem."

The lawsuit, which was filed in a Florida federal court, states that “Party Rock Anthem” directly uses Ross’ Port Of Miami single “Hustlin’” despite a “slight change” in the song’s lyrics.

"The use of 'Hustlin' ' in 'Party Rock Anthem' is readily apparent, despite the slight change from 'Everyday I’m hustlin' …' to 'Everyday I'm shufflin' …' and constitutes, inter alia, the creation of an unauthorized derivative work," read the lawsuit.

Additionally, the lawsuit says the success of “Party Rock Anthem” helped LMFAO launch the “highly successful” Party Rock Clothing. And on top of inspiring LMFAO’s clothing line, “Party Rock Anthem” was also sampled in a Kia Soul commercial in 2011. Kia Motors America is also named in the lawsuit.

"The phrase is so important to the success of 'Party Rock Anthem,' that LMFAO launched a highly successful clothing line, Party Rock Clothing, that features the phrase on T-shirts and other clothing items," says the lawsuit.

HollywoodReporter.com reports that the defendants in the case have ignored warnings about the infringement and as a result Ross is hoping for an injunction and maximum statutory damages.

The lawsuit filed against LMFAO comes just days after “Freeway” Ricky Ross’ $10 million lawsuit against Rick Ross over the use of his stage name was shot down by a California judge due to the First Amendment.

Music videos for Rick Ross’ “Hustlin’” and LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem” can be found below.

    I respect Hip Hop as an art form and consider many of its artists some of my close friends. But I believe the art form owes an obligation of authenticity. You cannot go out and say you sold cocaine at Kilo to Metric ton scale and be so detached from the experience. If you do, you have an obligation to the youth to tell them the truth and not lie about the facts of your circumstance to try to further validate the mistruth. There is a teachable moment about the state of our community when a man who has a respectable job as a correctional officer, has to recreate himself in my former image as a large-scale kingpin to gain what he feels is social acceptance as a successful man. I along with many others would have given it all up for stability and opportunity, when Reagan came into office with Trickle down gutting assistance programs, and privatization of public sector jobs ripped through our cities it strip-mined those types of stable jobs in a very short period from Black America. I will continue to go around the country and speak at schools, speaking to the need for the youth to avoid getting caught up in the dope game. Also I will be going city to city giving artists that dont get looks by labels Mixtape exposure. I look forward to the release of my autobiographical book due out in February, and film in development to help tell the truth about how Black American Cities developed and turned to drugs, the dope game and its consequences. - Freeway Rick Ross

    At the heart, rap is rooted in borrowing, remixing, and reworking. LMFAO used Rick Ross as a homage/shutout, and not as a creative crutch. That's the primary difference between creativity and stealing.

  • Anonymous

    Hmmm; couple of things come to mind... Ross has been accused of much the same thing with that song "3 Kings", so that could add an interesting dimension to this case. Surely "Everyday I'm hustlin'" is too vague/too overused a line to have copyright on? Given how much repurposing happens in rap music; if Ross wins there will be one hell of a precedent for the likes of Rakim, Nas and Jay-Z... And LMFAO are Berry Gordy's kids. Make of how that will impact this on what you will.

You must live a sheltered existence where you eat mayonnaise sandwiches and brag to your World O Warcraft buddies about how Emenim is such "real" rapper.

I just read his prostitute baby momma is also suing 50 Cent for emotional distress because saying she wanted to kill herself after he put out a sex tape of her getting dicked down with a rick ross tattoo by some other nigga. A prostitute wants money for emotional distress?? Yes you heard that right!

She should call Game he will take care of her with the Robin Hood Project!

  • LMFAO Sucks

    "The phrase is so important to the success of 'Party Rock Anthem,' that LMFAO launched a highly successful clothing line, Party Rock Clothing, that features the phrase on T-shirts and other clothing items," Fat boy really thinks that line had anything to do with the success of their song and clothing line? C'mon son!!! Most people didnt know or care where they got that line!

      "Despite an appeals court Judge granting Freeway Ross the right to an appealin effect undermining the previous ruling on the grounds of single publication protectionthe latest ruling finds that the rapper is protected by his First Amendment rights. The latest ruling relies on a distinction between the use of raw materials and the sum and substance of a piece of work. In essence, the decision hinges on the view that Ross use of the stage name accounts to the usage of a raw material and that he is not acting solely as an imposter. "Roberts created a celebrity identity, using the name Rick Ross, of a cocaine kingpin turned rapper," Borens ruling says, referencing the MMG emcee's born name, William Leonard Roberts II. "He was not simply an imposter seeking to profit solely off the name and reputation of Rick Ross. Rather, he made music out of fictional tales of dealing drugs and other exploitssome of which related to plaintiff. Using the name and certain details of an infamous criminal's life as basic elements, he created original artistic works." BITCH HE WON THE CASE.
