U.S. Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte wants to trademark his phrase "Jeah", but he's going to have to go through one of Compton's Most Wanted first. MC Eiht of the aforementioned group claims he coined the phrase "Jeah" back in 1988, and is shocked Lochte is now trying to "steal" it from him.
"Why try and trademark something his a** didn't even create? I am mad that he isn't giving me proper recognition for taking my saying. He is just disrespectful."
Eiht says he doesn't even care about the money--it's about the honor, or as he puts it, "respect and truth."
The California legend plans on sending Lochte a cease and desist letter, though nothing has been drawn up thus far.
