Hip hop superstar Jay-Z is suing a small online Australian retailer for profiting from the use of his name and hit song, “99 Problems” in books that teach children the alphabet.


JAY-Z whose real name is SHAWN CARTER, filed a lawsuit with the Federal Court of Australia, claiming Australian brand “The Little Homie” had infringed on his intellectual property.


The lawsuit said Jay-Z asked the company to stop selling the books in March 2018 but it continued to deliberately and knowingly use his likeness and lyrics in a flagrant, glaring manner.


The case is scheduled for an initial hearing on December 6.
