Ludacris’ record label “Disturbing tha Peace” is definitely being disturbed according to TMZ.

The rapper is accusing Demetri and Donna Evans-Brown, store owners from Texas, of illegally using his phrase for their business.

The couple runs an audio equipment and music recordings business called “Disturb The Peace” and Luda just isn’t having that.

Last month he filed a lawsuit against the couple claiming he has owned the phrase, “Disturbing tha Peace” since 2003 when he trademarked it.

Along with the 2003 trademark, it’s also the title of his 2005 album.

Even though the names are slightly different, Luda believes it confuses his fans and ruins his rep. As such, he’s suing for damages, attorneys’ fees and requesting the judge to force the Evans to stop using his trademark immediately.
