Rick Ross has been accused of allegedly stealing the marketing strategy for “Maybach Music.” Via TMZ, the legal battle began back in 2017 after Ishaq R. Muhammad, also known as Young Muhammad, sent Ross a threatening letter over the catchphrase.” Muhammad threatened to sue Ross’ after he used the phase without giving the correct credit.

Almost 10 months later, Muhammad wants Ross’ to pay for taking his idea and using the phase without his permission. There are documents claiming Mohammad featured Ross on a 2007 track called Caprice Music,” and used Ross voice to say the phrase throughout the track. However, Mohammad says this is when Ross jacked his idea.

This has led to Muhammad stating he wants $9,999 for theft of his intellectual property since he claims he trademarked his phrase in 2008. Ross has yet to respond to the claims.
