Flo Rida Not Being Sued By The State of Florida!
Earlier, a rumor was reported that rapper Flo Rida was probably being sued by the State of Florida over his name, well HipHopRX.com has confirmed that the rumor is, just that, a rumor, and the great state of Florida has no lawsuit “activity” against the rapper.
HipHopRX.com spoke with both the Attorney’s General Office of Florida and the Department of State for Florida, who handles trademark infringements for the state and was told by the AG office that there’s “definitely not” any such activity against Flo Rida happening.
Shortly after receiving our callback from the Attorney’s General Office, Jennifer Davis, Director of the Department of State for Florida gave us a callback as well and told HipHopRX there’s “no basis” for such a suit against the rapper who’s name is similar to the state so there is little to no likelihood of a lawsuit.
Rapper Flo Rida has been in the news for making “digital history” with his hot single “Right Round” featuring Ke$ha, which is off his second solo album entitled R.O.O.T.S. (Route of Overcoming the Struggle).
The album R.O.O.T.S. which features the single “Right Round” featuring Kesha has guest appearances from artists Pleasure P, Wyclef Jean, Nelly Furtado, Akon and Ne-Yo as well as production by Danja, Drumma Boy, will.i.am, and more.
R.O.O.T.S. is slated for release on March 31, 2009 on Atlantic Records/ WEA.
