Game Loses Legal Battle Over ‘Rolex Records’ Name, Renames Label
Well, you win some, you lose some. Game reportedly lost a six-month legal battle with luxury watch maker Rolex and has been forced to rename the Rolex Records imprint he formed with Stat Quo, last December. Jayceon recently took to his Instagram account to make the announcement claiming defeat. “We lost & had to fully change the name of the label & it’s logo away from the likeness of Rolex’s crown & stay away from any & everything resembling Rolex. Can’t use 'Roley Boyz' or 'Roley Records' [sic],” he typed.
On another note, the Compton rapper announced that he has renamed the label, The Firm, and is still looking for new talent for his roster. As previously reported, Game copped Rolexes for his entire team shortly after forming the label last year.
