Notorious B.I.G.The brand's favorite sweatshirt brand, Coogi, says: "Every guy with loot bought a Coogi" – explains that the Brooklyn Blacks stole their iconic fashion boss … and now they are chasing their team.
Coogi is pissed off by the special "Brooklyn Camo" jersey created by the Nets – which the players wore during the November 17, 2018 match in tribute to Biggie Smalls of Brooklyn, who loved Coogi sweaters.
The problem, according to Coogi, no one from the team, the NBA, Nike, New Era or Russell Brands has ever been allowed to use Coogi's iconic pattern … Cogi is suing them all !
Coogi claims to own the copyright on his most famous creations – called "pea soup" and "ricotta" – and they feel that the nets have simply stolen their loot.
Coogi says the Nets should have known better – since the brand is often worn by big stars like Conor McGregor, Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Rick Ross, Floyd Mayweather and more.
Plus, Biggie – the guy the Nets were trying to honor – shouted the mark in two of his biggest hits … "Big Poppa" of 1994 and "Hypnotize" of 1996.
Coogi does not just sue for damages, but also wants everyone involved to stop selling "Brooklyn Camo" jerseys and other sportswear.
In the meantime, here is Biggie … enjoy it!
