It appears that the ‘hood might take Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte under. As you’ll recall , the gold medal winning athlete had the loc’ed out idea of officially filing to trademark the term “Jeah!” on August 1, an expression he’s apparently been saying for several years now and has been using on merchandise like T-shirts, sunglasses and posters. Only problem is MC Eiht has been saying “Geah” on records and in real life all the way back to at least 1988. Geah, he has. So now the CMW rapper, who had a part in Menace II Society , tells TMZ he plans on sending a cease and desist letter to Lochte in order to stop him from using his phrase. Says Eiht: “Why try and trademark something his ass didn’t even create? I am mad that he isn’t giving me proper recognition for taking my saying. He is just disrespectful.”
Meanwhile, Lochte’s manager responded by saying: “Ryan has been using ‘Jeah’ for years,” adding, “This is the first I have heard of this claim by MC Eiht.” Like egotripland reader Daniel del Castillo said on our Facebook, Lochte needs to wake his punk ass up fo’ the 2012 shot! Geah!
