Looks like you can’t get anything past Mr. [lastfm]Jay-Z[/lastfm]. The  Hip-hop superstar and his business partner are suing Boston Red Sox baseball player David Ortiz on Thursday for naming a Dominican Republic nightclub after their chain of 40/40 Club sports bar lounges.

Ortiz is being accused of piggybacking on the fame, value and goodwill of their name through his club Forty/Forty and its website,, which they say has caused “marketplace confusion and damage.”

Get it together Ortiz, you do NOT mess with [lastfm]Jay-Z[/lastfm].
