Jay-Z is catching a case for not promoting his own fragrance line, New York Daily News reports.

A perfume distributor is accusing him of breaking their contract that required Shawn Carter to promote his own signature scent: Gold Jay Z.

The rapper declined six key appearances to promote the fragrance since October 2013.

Yo, maybe he just doesn’t like how it smells or something?

Whatever the reason is, the “Magna Carta/Holy Grail” artist still held on to the $2 million up-front royalty fee, but hasn’t even tried to get the cologne any public buzz.

We all know Jay-Z is not just a business man, but business, man.

So hopefully this mess gets cleared up and he can beat those charges like Rocky.
