Jay-Z claims the author who wrote problems99 but not my children’s book ABC
Jay-Z has sued an Australian writer for publishing an illustrated children’s book called AB-Jay-Z.
The rapper and Mogul have filed a lawsuit against Jessica Chiha and his company The Little Homie in a US federal court. And China wrote in a statement that will challenge the claims of infringement of intellectual property of Jay-Z.
Chiha said: “We are incredibly disappointed to have fought legally with someone whose music we love and love.”
He said: “The Jay-Z file is like a legal procedure for someone beyond belief and a lot of controversy.” We maintain that we have not done anything wrong and we intend to give our all for common sense and the common good, to the extent that we can fight. ”
Funded through Kickstarter, AB to Jay-Z was described in his campaign as a book written for “the next generation of hooded mice.” “Will they make sure your rap game is strong when school starts?”
Chiha’s book sparked controversy for the first time in 2017 when social media users asked if someone who worked for The Little Homie was black. The ChangeG ORG petition was also launched, in which Chiha was accused of trying to benefit from cultural appropriation and black culture.
The book uses illustrations of famous rappers, including the infamous BIG, Snoop Dogg and Eminem to teach children the alphabet. The “AB to J-Z” brand has expanded to include colored books and clothes.
The quote on the back of the book says: “If you have a problem with the alphabet, I feel bad for your child, I have 99 problems, but my ABC is not one.” The quote refers to Jay-Z’s famous 2004 song “99”. “, Which is the lyrics of the song:” If you have a girl problem, I feel bad for your son, I have 99 problems, but not a bitch. ”
According to court documents, Jay-Z’s lawyers requested to stop Chiha’s publication of the book in March 2018 and July 2019. The lawsuit filed in September alleged that the retailer and the director deliberately and deliberately attempted to exchange the rapper’s reputation.
