In a bit of incredibly ridiculous news out of California, a rapper from Oakland, who has been performing under the name “Pope Emeritus” since 2006, has threatened a lawsuit if Pope Benedict XVI is called that when he retires on Thursday, according to The New Yorker.

“I don’t care who he is, I ain’t let nobody mess with my brand,” said Emeritus, who before 2006 recorded under the name Notorious P.O.P.E.

The Vatican told the media this week that it did not realize Emeritus laid claim to the name some seven years ago. The rapper from California was not buying that excuse. He said, “They should have done what I did before I picked it out: Google it.”

Emeritus is claiming that the issue at hand is a case of trademark infringement and he is none too pleased with the situation. “He’s the one who should step aside. Call himself P. Biddy or something. This is wack, yo.”

Sources close to the Vatican said that Benedict will probably choose a different name for himself when he resigns instead of risking a legal fight with the rapper. “The last thing the Church needs right now is another lawsuit.”
