London, June 13 (IANS) Rapper Jay-Z is being sued for $88 million by former boxer Mitchell Rose who claims he stole his style. Ananova.com reports that Rose has filed a lawsuit against Jay-Z at a federal court in New York.
He said: “He took the style and delivery. He is on the regular, now Lil’ Kim is using it. All I want is justice. Jay-Z knows what I’m talking about.”
After a boxing match in 2001, Rose gave Jay-Z a demo tape with all his rhymes. Rose claims even the lyrics were also stolen along with delivery quirks.
He added: “He took the demo with him and shortly after that he began using the whispering, which he now frequents, in his songs.”
