OVO Sound boss Drake isn’t here for the Jewish jokes and stereotypes. New reports claim 6 God is taking legal action against a company called Hebrew Hustle.
According to reports, Drake believes the music publishing company used his image without permission and also played off a Jewish stereotype.
Drake’s been in legal battles with the publisher/management co. for years. Hebrew Hustle first sued him over a sample in his song, “Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2.” Now, he’s suing the co., claiming it used his name and image on its website … leading the public to think they’re working with him. In new docs filed in that suit, Drake’s lawyers call out the company over its name, saying, “The very name of Hebrew Hustle is offensive, as it perpetuates stereotypes regarding persons of Jewish heritage, such as [Drake].” (TMZ)
The 6 God is aiming to dig into the company’s pockets for a series of damages.
Drizzy’s legal team says he would never have allowed the company to use his image due to its offensive name. According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Drake wants damages for the “mental distress” and “humiliation” suffered from any perceived connection to Hebrew Hustle — plus any money the company made from using his likeness. By the way, Drake beat HH last year in the lawsuit over his sample. (TMZ)
