Jay Z and Rocawear are in legal trouble (again), this time over a t-shirt that a company says uses the phrase “Hood Love” without permission.

According to TMZ, HoodLove is a for-profit company dedicated to improving poor neighborhoods. The company filed a lawsuit earlier this month against ROC Apparel Group because they’re selling a t-shirt that uses the term. HoodLove trademarked the phrase in 2006. Besides wanting the t-shirt taken out of stores, HoodLove wants Rocawear to turn over the profits from the t-shirt.

Just a couple of months ago, Rocawear was sued for $450,000 in outstanding debt to a company called iSource NYC, which says it hasn’t been paid the balance due on a manufacturing order.

Rocawear needs to do a better job of staying out of court!

MN Jam Of The Day: “Just In Case” By Jaheim

Such a simple song, but something about “Just In Case” hits the spot, day or night. The great vocals by Jaheim and his background singers make this song a winner, and the beat (suspiciously close to Next’s “Wifey”as someone on YouTube pointed out) can get your head bobbin’ or your feet moving. I’ll let you decide based on your setting how you will jam to this one, but I’m sure you will enjoy it one way or another. Shout out to Maia Campbell, as she played his better half in the dramatic video, and a big shout out to Jaheim’s stylist, who needed to be fired for the horrible bedazzled joints he was wearing from head to toe (but I do remember everyone wearing those blinged out bandanas back in the day). But great storyline, and wonderful message. Definitely take Jaheim’s words to heart, and let the person you love know how you feel…you know…just in case. After last Friday’s horrific events, it’s more important to do so than ever loves. Enjoy, and have a great day!

Was this your jam?
