The 48-year-old has filed a suit against Marty Cuatchon – owner of New York-based Woof Tang Clan – citing breach of copyright. 

RZA claims Wu-Tang Clan's name and logo has been 'unmistakably associated' with the group since the band formed in 1993.

The Brooklyn-based dog-walking company, claim to walk “the illest group of dogs in New York City”. 

Staff members are also said to be “courteous and responsible, as long as we’re in agreement that Nas’ ‘Illmatic’ is the greatest album of all time”.

Speaking to The New York Daily News, Woof-Tang Clan owner Marty Cuatchon said: “I am a fan. We walk dogs. I thought it was a good idea.”

It's not the first time a business used a renowned brand's name or brand to sell their wares.
