Hells Angels Motorcycle Club are suing rapper Jeezy (f.k.a. Young Jeezy) for allegedly lifting their iconic Death Head logo for a new line of streetwear, according to TMZ.

In a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles County court, the fabled motorcycle gang claim that Jeezy’s clothing line 8732 Apparel created a back patch design that is far too similar to their own insignia and thus, will cause confusion amid consumers. (I’d love to see the Venn Diagram of Jeezy fans and Hells Angels’ followers.) The Angels are seeking an undisclosed share of 8732’s profits and want production of the line of denim vests and hats to be halted immediately. On the plus side, this is way more civil than how the group used to handle their business.

It’s not the first time the Hells Angels have favored lawsuits over chains and knives: last year, they sued skater Rob Dyrdek’s clothing company and MTV for a similar copyright violation.

Below, watch a video of motorcycle stunts while listening to Jeezy’s “R.I.P.”. ‘Cause, why not?
