Kanye West Sues JAY-Z’s Roc-A-Fella Records & EMI
Kanye West files lawsuits against Roc-A-Fella Records and EMI for money he says is owed to him. Get the scoop.
Kanye West said everybody can get this legal smoke!
On Friday, the rapper has filed lawsuits against JAY-Z‘s Roc-A-Fella Records and EMI Publishing for his coins!
Yeezy means business because he’s hired Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, one of the most powerful firms in the country.
According to the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, in 2003, the year before he came out with his breakout album, “College Dropout,” he signed a contract with EMI. The suit claims by the end of 2011, Kanye had written solely or with other writers more than 200 songs and gave the rights to those songs to EMI.
Those songs include some of the most influential and successful songs in his catalog, although the suit isn’t specific.
The suit is heavily redacted, although it says there is a dispute and he wants a judge to declare his rights under the contract — presumably for money.
If he’s owed the money…pay that man (before we’re subjected to another Twitter rant)!
