So I heard something about this and I wanted to see if it was true cause you know how rumors are. I feel like if he is indeed owed money, why not just talk it out with Jay Z instead of getting lawyers involved. That is what I don't get. Are they not on good terms or something? The details are below.
Kanye West reportedly filed two lawsuits earlier today against his former label and EMI Publishing. Kanye claims he signed an exclusive deal with Roc-A-Fella. Although the suit is heavily redacted, he's demanding the money he's owed. He's also requesting the declaration of rights over a dispute he's having. His suit against EMI April Music simply claims they owe him over a music dispute.
The rapper claims he signed a contract with EMI in 2003, a year before his debut album College Dropout was released. He claims that by the end of 2011, he had written, both individually and with other writers, more than 200 track with the rights of those songs going to EMI. The lawsuit didn't specify which songs he was referring to, but the publication claims it's some of his most influential and successful tracks.
