When you have a well know name like Rick Rubin and you are well respected in the music industry  the last thing you would want to do is change your name.Rick Rubin’s name is synonymous with Hip-Hop culture as he and Russell Simmons co-founded Def Jam Records together in the early 80s, but “Rick” is not his legal birth name. He shorted his moniker, which is Frederick Jay Rubin.Now he’s taking it to the courts to make sure no one will ever call him Frederick again.
