American rapper, Cardi B, 26, who made the work “Okurrr” popular, has filed paperwork with the United States Patent and Trademark Office to trademark her “Okurrr” catchphrase for “paper goods, namely paper cups and posters.”
According to records obtained by Page Six, the rapper also plans to put the phrase on “clothing, namely, T-shirts, sweatshirts, hooded sweatshirts, pants, shorts, jackets, footwear, headgear, namely hats and caps, blouses, bodysuits, dresses, jumpsuits, leggings, shirts, sweaters, undergarments.”
Okurrr or Okurr was Cardi’s unique way of saying OK and it soon blew up with a number of people using it. It even featured in the Pepsi advert that Cardi B was in. She now plans to ensure that she owns the name.
Cardi previously described the word as the sound a “cold pigeon in New York City” makes.
