As reported, JAY-Z wants to be removed from the lawsuit, clarifying that Roc Nation and himself personally are two different entities, as well as asserting that he wasn't involved with the situation that led to the lawsuit in the first place.

According to previous reports, Iconix is suing JAY-Z, MLB, Roc Nation, New Era, Lids and the San Francisco Giants for $10 million each, for using the Roc Nation logo without approval.
