Bill Cosby feels rapper named Fat Al too similar to Fat Albert
Bill Cosby has been having his battles of legal problems. Just last week a settlement was made out of court with a Canadian woman over a lawsuit where she stated that the entertainer drugged and sexually assaulted her. Even though this incident was settled, Bill Cosby isn’t going to settle with a chubby nineteen year old rapper from Cleveland, Ohio who has been going by the name Fat Al which has become his identity and a nickname of his birth name Aljaray.
Bill Cosby’s legal team is making claims that the artist’s name is too close to Fat Albert, the cartoon character created by Bill Cosby who is also known for playing Cliff Huxtable on one of the most popular television shows of the ’80s “Bill Cosby Show”.
“I guess he doesn’t like rappers,” states Aljaray Gaston. “I’m just trying to come up and Bill Cosby was hating. I know one thing, I won’t be buying any more Jell-O pudding.”
Aljaray Gaston and Atlantic Records have decided to go with the performing name Al Fatz for his label debut that he’s currently working on. Akon and Lil Wayne are contributing to the project.
Aljaray Gaston “Al Fatz” also has a song on the Madden 2007 video game soundtrack and is recording the theme for Electronic Arts’ NBA Street Homecourt game. He is also stated to be recording a song for a Sprite advertising campaign featuring basketball star LeBron James.
