Johnny Nunez/WireImageLil Jon is planning to “turn up” on a fancy Hamptons store. The rapper’s threatening to sue Blue & Cream over allegedly selling a flask with his song title, “Turn Down for What.”
The “Get Low” star’s lawyers sent a cease and desist letter to the owners of the Hamptons store to ask them to stop selling the flasks, which bear the name of his 2013 hit track, unless they agree to a licensing deal, which would give Lil Jon 40 per cent of the future profits.
Blue & Cream owner Jeffrey Goldstein responded to the letter telling the New York Post Page Six, “The flask was inspired by the song’s party theme. This is likely a case of a third party trying to bully us, but the right thing to do is to stop selling the flask.”
“It was all in good fun,” Golstein said. “It wasn’t meant to cause an international incident.”
Blue & Cream caters to a high-profile clientele including celebrities Gwyneth Paltrow, Chanel Iman and Christie Brinkley, according to Page Six.
