It's interesting - they filed for a trademark recently, but the phrase actually comes from a rap song long before that. I don't think it would interfere with a character using the phrase in a book, anymore than having your detective drive a Ford, drink a Coke, carry a Smith&Wesson, or shut down a Mickey Mouse operation would be actionable.
