Jay-Z Sued Over Roc Nation Logo

Jay-Z is being sued by a company named Volcom for trademark infringement regarding the Roc Nation logo. Executives at Volcom have a major issue with the diamond design used to promote Jay Z’s music publishing and management firm, saying the symbol bears a striking resemblance to their own. Volcom has trademarked their symbol since 1991.

Jay-Z launched launched Roc Nation back in 08′ and while Volcom sent word to them directly they were ignored so have since decided to take the matter up in court. The lawsuit states,

“While Roc Nation appears to have initially used the diamond only in combination with the words ‘Roc Nation’ it is now using the diamond logo on its own, causing a likelihood of confusion among consumers.”

Volcom is so serious it’s to the extent were they want Roc Nation to discontinue using the logo and have all existing products that have the design on it to be destroyed. The above picture puts the two logo’s side by side. Is it to similar to one another? You be the judge.


divaTunes: Jim Jones ft. Ashanti- "Changing The Locks"

Jim Jones has been in the studio working with Ashanti and this is what the two have brewed up. It’s a track that speaks on the drama and ordeals in relationships. Jim spits about his wrongs why Ashanti isn’t having it.

“I used to give you every piece of me/ Until you f**ked around and lost that key/ I used to really love you (Now I think nothing of you)/ You ain’t gotta come back no more ’cause I’m gone”

The track is ok but really really short, take a listen.

Video: "E.T" Katy Perry ft. Kanye West

 

Katy Perry and Kanye West are out of this world in the video for “E.T” from Perry’s album Teenage Dream. This video must have been super expensive because they are a ton of cool special effects and Katy’s make-up is on point.  Kanye is sitting, or should I say standing, cool in the middle of space as he spits his two bars.  I never thought these two would do a song together, but Katy does have a thing for collaborating with rappers…and she used to date one (Travie McCoy).  Check it out below:

Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa Chat on MTV's RapFix

Now that Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose are out with their relationship, everyone wants to know about them as a pair.  Wiz, who continues to promote his album Rolling Papers sat down on the couches at MTV’s RapFix Live to talk to Sway about his music and of course Amber.  Sway invited Amber to join them at one point and I must say, it was a very cute three minutes:

Wiz On Why He Doesn’t Hide His Relationship With Amber:
I’m me, that’s what it is. I’m completely comfortable with everything about me in my life. That’s what my career has been built off of…everybody gets that right away. You don’t gotta find nothing about me. I’m not going to hide it, I’m going to completely embrace it … I just go after what I feel and I have no problem with being public or just letting people know what’s going on with me, for Real, for real.

Wiz On How He Deals With Backlash:
We just stay positive with each other, that’s the important thing. The game will try to tear you down and try to make you feel like what you have already isn’t enough. So as long as we stay positive …we just met each other, we’re really new but we’re very, very close. We understand each other’s life and stuff like that…what we’ve been through. Understanding is really, really important.

Amber On What She Thought of Wiz When She First Met Him:
Well, he’s really funny, he’s really charming and I didn’t know much about his music at first but obviously, he became a good friend. I started listening to his music and we became really close and he’s just awesome. He’s talented, he’s amazing.
I think Amber was so hesitant to jump into the interview because she isn’t used to having a voice in the public eye. *coughKanye*

They seem very happy together and they are definitely on the come-up.  Do we all agree??  Click the link to watch the video:
