Jelly Roll is loved by nearly everyone, so it comes as a bit of a surprise that he was once sued by Waffle House.  Back in 2013, Jelly was an underground rapper and put out a mixtape called, “Whiskey, Weed, and Waffle House”.  So, you can understand how they could get a little upset.

Jelly said, “I used the Waffle House logo on the CD cover for the mixtape, and that’s a big no-no . . . I didn’t know this at the time.  And they sent me a cease-and-desist letter and they froze my YouTube channel up.  It was a big debacle.”

You’d think this might bother most people, but instead Jelly said, “I was calling everybody, like, we’re popular!  Waffle House is trying to sue us!”

He also said, “I [was] 450 pounds . . . I should have sued Waffle House 10 years ago.  Do you know how many All-Star Breakfasts I have bought in my life?  I might’ve stopped at 330!”

In the end, Jelly Roll settled the case for $10,000, after printing around that many mixtapes for free.  Then they changed the name of the album to, “Whiskey, Weed, and Women”.  And, also put a “cease and desist” logo on the cover.
