Beware All Who Whisper

It could cost you $88 mil.

A former heavyweight boxer (who you've probably never heard of) named Mitchell Rose is filing an $88 million suit against Jay-Z, claiming, "He took the [Rose's] demo [tape] with him and shortly after that he began using the whispering (which he now frequents) in his songs.... He's using it on the regular, now Lil' Kim is using it. All I want is justice. Jay-Z knows what I am talking about."

Word is he is also going after several prominent boxers, claiming they stole his "jab" punch and most of the human population claiming that they are using his life-sustaining technique of "breathing."

This is an interesting case since rose is being brought to court by Glass Joe for allegedly stealing his jaw and record.

For the Rose/Jay-Z case, many legal pundits are looking for precedence in Clarence Walker v. The Beatles.
