Former Boxer Sues Jay-Z For Stealing His Rhyme Style

Former Boxer Sues Jay-Z For Stealing His Rhyme Style

    It isn't all thrills and good news for Jigga these days. According to allhiphop, former heavyweight boxer Mitchell Rose is getting ready to file a $88 million dollar copyright lawsuit against Jay-Z. Rose says that he gave Jay-Z a demo tape in 2001 and he thinks Jay-Z stold his rhyming style, delivery and even lyrics. “He took the style and the delivery,” Rose told AllHipHop.com. “He’s using it on the regular, now Lil’ Kim is using it. All I want is justice. Jay-Z knows what I am talking about."

    Mitchell Rose is also a personal injury lawyer who wrote a book called "Mike Tyson Tried To Kill My Daddy." The boxer says Jigga “took the demo with him and shortly after that he began using the whispering (which he now frequents) in his songs." Rose served papers to Jay-Z's 40/40 night clubs but not to Jigga to himself. "I had previously trained some of my artists to use that style, but it quickly became obsolete after Jay-Z got a hold of it," Rose claims. "He [Jay-Z] used the whispering to enhance his music and financially benefit from it. Jay-Z disregarded the fact that it was my demo where he got the style from as he went on to use it for his own personal gains, which is wrong.”
