Santogold is dead.  Sort of.  Not really. 

Singer Santi White has rechristened her moniker as Santigold, thanks to a law suit with a little-known wrestler-type sales person.


Last year, some dude named Santo Gold decided to sue Santi in between making small budget films and selling weak bling via infomercials. Santo Gold, real name Santo Rigatuso of Baltimore, made a never released movie called “Santo Gold’s Blood Circus (1985).” The movie is now spliced up and inserted inside his infomericals, which peddles jewelry.


Meanwhile, the newly created Santigold isn’t sweating it.

A press release reads, “Change the graffiti on the bathroom wall, get your tattoo fixed, get your T-shirt airbrushed and change the name on your year-end list. Santogold is now Santigold. She’s not telling you why, that’s just how it is.”

On the other side, the dweeb Santo Gold has release the worst diss record ever, “I’m The Real Santo Gold.”


“I’m the real Santo Gold and I don’t like my name being stole.”

We’d prefer if you didn’t rap or make music.

  1. i think this is str8 bullshit.

  2. Honestly, it has been point out in interviews that she got her name nickname from his infomercials. That is dude’s brand. She jacked it, he sued. He is right to do so.

    I love her music, her style and think she is fly as shit but yo, she jacked his name — there is no way around it.
