Jay Z's apparel company being sued for using the phrase

Rocawear just can’t catch a break!

After struggling financially and owing wholesale company iSource NYC massive amounts of money, Jay Z’s clothing line is now being sued for using the phrase "Hood Love" on one of their shirts (above).

A company called HoodLove, LLC filed a lawsuit against ROC Apparel Group in early August claiming they’ve owned the trademark for HoodLove since 2006.

The for-profit company is dedicated to the recovery of poverty-stricken communities, and believe Hova's shirt is confusing the public and compromising their good name.

HoodLove's suing for all profits made off the shirt and wants the design to be removed from stores.

    Jay z sold rocawear I believe back in 2006/7 so he is not the person being sued, but the owners of rocawear is.

    Jay-Z unveiled the details of his new album last night at Game 5 of the NBA Finals, which will be entitled Magna Carta Holy Grail. I’m guessing the album title might be a play on words with his name Shawn Carter. Or it’s some kind of power struggle inside of the rap industry versus the Illuminati. The commercial keeps referencing about “writing the new rules” and it’s scrawled on the website for the album as well. The writing of new rules occurred with the original Magna Carta from the year 1215, when the subjects first started to rise up against the King of England and attempt to limit his powers.

    Which one is it Young Hova???????????????????????
