Hip-Hop Rumors: Did Theraflu’s Lawsuit Threats Force Kanye West To Change The Name Of His Track?


Kanye West dropped his single “Theraflu” last week, which chronicled his infatuation with Kim Kardashian, told PETA to go kick rocks, and gave props to Wiz Khalifa among other topics. The suits over at cold medicine company Theraflu did not like the association with Kanye West and threatened to sue him last week. Well, those threats did not fall on deaf ears. This morning, Kanye West announced that he has changed the name of his Hit-Boy produced track “Theraflu” to the now new and improved title, “Way Too Cold”. Check out Kanye’s tweet below:

“I changed the name of the song THERAFLU to WAY TOO COLD and you can buy it now at KanyeWest.com.”

The name change comes complete with new artwork, which now shows the naked, headless torso of a woman topped with a bottle of cold milk. Ye’s message did not mention that impending lawsuit, but one can only guess that Kanye took the logical route and decided to avoid the problem all together by changing the name.

    HA! Milk makes a body good! Even headless, all you wanna see is them tits! Great analogy!

  • Smart move Ye.  No need for a lawsuit.

    this didn’t make me give any more or less a phuck than it did when the song was released. I don’t know how or why people feel that suing is what’s necessary to get results nowadays. I’m quite sure TheraFlu company could’ve gotten the same result had they written dude and said, “hey, although we’re flattered that this trick has got your nose so wide open that you compared her love to our product, but we really do not wish to be associated with this who-gives-a-phuckery of a relationship. Please change your title. thanks”

    or something to that effect

    Black Men will never realize a White Man will stay on top if you don’t realizes his strategy. You really think it’s a coincidence you are coming to these so called BLACK websites and see non black women pushed in your face as beauty everyday? Not to mention mainstream promoting the interracial relationships and non black women/men as what is top of the line beauty (most black women see right through ALL this marketing when it comes to men). The white man knows if he keeps us divide against 1 another the White Man stays winning. While a black man just thinks I am doing good because I can sleep with a non black woman and getting money. However, the white man is 10 steps ahead of you my brothers. You are far from winning in the direction your going and got to get smarter than the White Man at his strategy being used on you. You are being promoted this everyday for a reason. You are seeing black women shown in a negative way for a reason (black women are shown black men in a negative way for a reason too). Think About It! You don’t need to go to college to see where I am coming from with marketing /advertising. Which is controlled by WHITE MEN.

  • Tell Kanye to shut up and put out a real hit. This song was only to generate buzz, for what i don’t know cuz that song ain’t buzzin’
