AHH Stray News: Jay-Z, Raekwon, Bootcamp

Rocawear was forced

to scrap the name of a clothing and jewelry line called “Rocawear MUSE,”

after a competitor claimed trademark infringement. According to a lawsuit filed

in Manhattan federal court, Rocawear competitor Maggy London International owns

the “MUSE” trademark and has also sold women’s apparel and accessories

as well. Rocawear also inked a deal with Colors in Optics Ltd, a New York based

eyewear manufacturer, who will produce a Rocawear line of sunglasses.

According to sources,

Raekwon has begun recording a sequel to Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, his 1995 album

widely regarded as a classic. WuTangcorp.com reports that the Staten Island

rapper has solicited the artistry of Mobb Deep, Nas, Fat Joe, Busta Rhymes,

The RZA, Alchemist and others. Details have yet to be released.

In related news,

the highly anticipated reality show “Stuck On Dirt,” which features

Ol’ Dirty Bastard has been pushed to a later, unspecified date.

Duck Down recently

released a raunchy DVD, "Puss N Boots,” a collaborative effort with

New York pornographer Booz. With the song “VIP,” the DVD features

new music from Boot Camp Click as well at studio outtakes from the group. The

party atmosphere is overwhelmingly prevalent as the video features “dancers,

strippers, and groupies.” The video dropped September 7th.
