Rosa Parks vs. Outkast

The Rosa Parks drama is apparently over for Outkast. The famous civil rights bus rider sued Outkast for $5 billion in 1999 for using her name as the title of a song from their 1998 album "Aquemini."

"Ah ha, hush that fuss
Everybody move to the back of the bus
Do you wanna bump and slump with us
We the type of people make the club get crunk"

Rosa Parks apparently did not want to bump, slump or get crunk with Big Boi and Andre 3000.

The two parties have finally settled the suit. Outkast doesn't have to pay, but will make amends by working with the Rosa Parks Foundation to teach today's kids about her role in history.

Check out the full story here.
