Jeezy, who recently dropped the ‘Young’, is no stranger to beef – he’s been in public confrontations with Freddie Gibbs and Rick Ross – and now he is going head-to-head with infamous bikie gang The Hells Angels.

Yeezy is being sued by the bikies for supposedly “borrowing” their logo in his clothing line, 8732 Apparel.

A variation of the gang’s iconic flaming skull emblem is being used in the rapper’s collection, which features a range of t-shirts, jackets and hats. Jeezy has already received significant profits from the sale of pieces emblazoned with the imitated logo, which the Angels claim aren’t his to make and are suing for said profits, as well as an additional unspecified amount.

Until the dispute is settled, the gang wants Jeezy to stop selling anything which even remotely resembles their iconic crest. Despite this being a beef between a legendary bikie gang known for their violence and a rapper who is also known for not backing down, the beef will be settled legally and in court.  In a comment to TMZ the gang said “The Hells Angels don’t need baseball bats and chains to protect their image — all we need is a good lawyer.”

So if an agreement is not met, it’s unlikely things will be dealt with in a non-amicable manner. And if past cases are anything to go by, the Angels will get their settlement as they did in a suit against Rob Dyrdek’s clothing company and MTV for a similar bootlegged logo last year.
