Cardi B's application to trademark the catchphrase "Okurr" has been denied.
According to documents obtained by The Blast, the US Patent and Trademark Office has filed the term under "widely-used commonplace expressions".
The "Please Me" rapper had intended on using the word on an apparel line and various merchandise.
Officials added that “Okurr" "does not function as a trademark or service mark to indicate the source of applicant’s goods and/or services."
Cardi, who has 11-month-old daughter Kulture with husband Offset, previously defended her trademark application.
She said: “Every single time I go to a corporate meeting, these folks be like, ‘Oh my god, can we please hear you say ‘Okurrr’?’ … You think I ain’t gonna profit off this shit?! Bitch, white folks do it all the motherfucking time, so you gonna be mad at me cos I wanna get some mother****ing money?”
