Life Jay-Z sues Australian bookstore for using his name By weekster Posted on November 28, 2019 1 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Jay-Z is not so happy with an online bookstore from Australia. The website The Little Homie sells hip-hop inspired clothing and books and, according to the rapper, has used his name and texts for a book without being asked. Beyoncé’s husband is therefore suing the company for, among other things, infringing his trademark, reports The Sydney Morning Herald. The rapper thinks it is not possible for the website to sell a book with the title AB to Jay-Z. The children’s book also refers to his hit 99 Problems. For example, a sentence from the song is used and only the words ‘girl’ and ‘bitch’ are replaced by ‘alphabet’ and ‘ABC’. According to Jay, it wrongly suggests that he has something to do with the book. Jay-Z’s lawyers had already asked The Little Homie last year to stop selling it, but it was not responded to. A complaint was therefore filed earlier this week.
