Rick Ross Loses Lawsuit over LMFAO chart

Rapper William Roberts better known as Rick Ross has lost his lawsuit over LMFAO’s chart-topping 2010 song “Party Rock Anthem,” which contains the phrase “Everyday I’m shufflin’ ” in the chorus.

Ross claims that the Los Angeles-based electro-pop duo’s hit is a copyright infringement of his own chart-topper “Hustlin’,” which contains the lyric “Everyday I’m hustlin'”  and released on Ross’ 2006 debut album, “Port of Miami”.

U.S. District Judge Kathleen Williams was asked to address on summary judgment whether Ross’ three-word phrase is original enough to be copyrightable.
