Royce Rizzy Loses Lawsuit to Rolls Royce Over Name
In a January 2015 lawsuit, luxury car company Rolls Royce sued rapper Rolls Royce Rizzy for copyright infringement citing the rapper's name, his use of their RR logo and the "Team Rolls Royce" shirts that he was selling on his website.
Now, TMZ is reporting that a judge has ordered the Atlanta rapper to shed all references to the luxury car brand, including his name. He will for now be known as Royce Rizzy following the decision. Rizzy is a part of Private Club Records which also includes "Uber Everywhere" rapper Madeintyo.
In a March 2013 interview with XXL, the rapper credited his powerful voice for his ability to stand out and avoid comparisons, and said that he'd like to work with Pharrell and The Weeknd. He said the following on his then stand out moment and songs to date, "One of my big performances was at Birthday Bash Atlanta, which was a show in front of thousands with Lil Scrappy and Lil Jon. A3C was also pretty big for me as well, and Chip Tha Ripper bought me out during his set. The songs that have gotten a lot of buzz was one I did with Lil Scrappy called 'Body Bag,' when I got on the remix with Young Buck, and one with Chevy Woods as well called 'No Tie.'"
The Private Club Records gang also dropped a new song "Vroom" earlier this week, complete with a video that you can watch below.
