Exclusive 0826_jayz_hood_love

Jay Z and Rocawear have no business plastering the phrase “Hood Love” all over t-shirts … so says the pissed off company that owns the phrase and is now suing the pants off Jigga”s clothing label.

HoodLove, LLC — a for-profit company dedicated to improving poverty stricken communities — filed the lawsuit against ROC Apparel Group earlier this month … over one specific shirt in the Rocawear line, which reads HoodLove in giant letters.

HoodLove says it”s owned the trademark since 2006 — and claims Jay”s company came along and started making a buck … confusing the public, and trading off their good name.

It”s not clear how much cash Rocawear”s made off the shirts, but HoodLove is suing for the profits … and also wants the apparel yanked from stores.
