In a new report by BBC News, it is being reported that Jay-Z is taking legal action against an Australian retailer called 'The Little Homie.' The company is accused of using his name and lyrics for a children's book titled "AB to Jay-Z", the suit claims Jay-Z's intellectual property has been breached with lyrics taken from his 2003 hit, "99 Problems."
On the children's book's product page, the description reads, "If you're having alphabet problems I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but my ABC's ain't one!" and also, "This hip-hop inspired book is designed to pump up your child’s alphabet game. Let Jay-Z, Biggie Smalls, Eminem, Pharrell, Snoop [Dogg] and more, teach your little homie their ABCs."

The Australian retailer reportedly received a notice all the way back in 2018, being asked to stop selling the product, but failed at doing so.
