According to the website, Bossip Atlanta rapper T.I. is being sued by a Georgia man that goes by the name of Nicholas Partridge for over $10 Million dollars. The site says Partridge previously sued the Hustle Gang boss for theft of intellectual property for allegedly co-opting the name “Bankroll Mafia.” Now, he is looking to be paid $10 million to compensate for his loss.
Nicholas Partridge reportedly says he created the name and idea for “Bankroll Mafia” in 2014 when he was behind bars at the Gwinnett County Jail. Partridge says while he was in protective custody he would pass the time by doing a little drawing, the lawsuit claims this was when he created the brand.
Fast forward two years later in 2016 and T.I. would unleash his collaboration called Bankroll Mafia, the album featured Young Thug, Shad da God, PeeWee Roscoe, Lil Duke, London Jae and the Grand Hustle CEO himself.
Partridge is adamant he never gave Tip permission to use the name and wants to be reimbursed for the financial loss he reportedly has suffered.
