Roc Nation founder Jay Z is no stranger to litigation. In the last year alone he's dealt with lawsuits over Tidal's streaming promises, his alleged failure to promote a fragrance line, ownership Roc-a-Fella logo and more.

The latest company to take issue with Mr. Carter is Iconix Brand Group, which is suing both Jay Z and Roc Nation for copyright infringement. The lawsuit is in response to a line of New Era MLB baseball caps that prominently feature the Roc logo.

Iconix claims they paid somewhere in the neighborhood of $204 million to full rights to the logo - including branding and licensing - and that the partnership went forward without their consent or input. Documents also list New Era, Lids, the MLB and the New York Giants as defendants because they either actively sell or promote the hat line.

On the upside, if Jay Z wins the lawsuit he can always celebrate with his own $850 bottle of champagne
