Ice Cube Claims Robinhood Stole His Image To Benefit Their Bottom Line

Rap star Ice Cube says Robinhood is profiting off of his image and likeness in a new lawsuit.

Rapper and actor Ice Cube is suing executives at financial services company Robinhood for using his image for promotional purposes without permission.

He claims company bosses are using a photo of him in an ad featured in their news service, Robinhood Snacks.

He alleges they took an image of him from another project and put it into a newsletter update, which featured the line “Correct yourself, before you wreck yourself” – a lyric from his track “Check Yo Self.”

Cube insists the link suggests he endorses the company, which he doesn’t, and claims Robinhood marketing bosses have used images of Jay-Z and Nas to endorse products and services in the past.
