Rapper Rick Ross is suing pop duo LMFAO for stealing his lyrics...

According to reports Rick Ross is suing LMFAO over their 2010 smash hit single 'Party Rock Anthem' claiming their use of the phrase 'Everyday I'm Shuffling' is a blatant rip-off of 'Everyday I'm Hustling' from Rick Ross' 2006 single 'Hustlin' off his debut album Port of Miami.

Rick Ross contends LMFAO's single would not have been a monster hit without the unauthorized use of his hook.

Party Rock Anthem sold over 7 million copies and has been used in movie soundtracks and commercials.

Rick Ross is seeking an injunction and maximum statutory damages.
