The phrase “it ain’t no fun unless the homies get some” might have been taken too far in light of a recent lawsuit filed by Ken Block against the former producers of Gymkhana Practice, Gymkhana Two and Gymkhana Three (Mad Media).

According to Mr. Block, it turns out Mad Media acquired the gymkhana.com web domain while under contract with Ken Block and DC Shoes without his knowledge or permission. Accumulating plenty of business in the mean time from sponsors and advertisers looking to cash in on the highly successful automotive mayhem videos.

Ken has reportedly been in several discussions with Mad Media and was told to go F--- himself (allegedly) as a response. Not something you would hope to hear when addressing an issue as big as this.

“If Mad Media had approached me like a reputable media company with a well thought out and developed business plan for gymkhana.com that made actual sense for helping to grow the GYMKHANA brand, I would have been open to working with them on it,” stated Ken when interview by Jalopnik.com We’ll be sure to keep you updated on the latest developments.
