NEWS: Jay-Z Sued By Dumbass For $88M For Whisper Flow

This may be the most pointless lawsuit against Jay-Z ever. This won't even come close to making it to trial.

Former heavyweight boxer Mitchell Rose is planning to file an $88 million dollar copyright lawsuit against Jay-Z in Brooklyn Federal Court [...] According to Rose, he gave Jay-Z his demo tape on March 12, 2001, following a bout between William Joppy and Felix Trinidad. He was shocked to discover that Jay-Z allegedly stole his style of rhyming, delivery and even certain lyrics. “He took the style and the delivery,” [...] 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." "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.” (More on AHH.)
