Kanye West is suing both Roc-A-Fella Records and EMI for an undisclosed amount of owed money. TMZ revealed that a lot of information is redacted from the lawsuits, but it shows that he's asking for a declaration of his rights and owed money.
The lawsuit also shows that Kanye West signed a deal with EMI in 2003 before releasing The College Dropout, and by 2011 he had written or collaborated on over 200 songs that he gave EMI the rights to. While specific songs weren't listed in the lawsuit, Kanye wrote some of his most influential and successful songs during this time period.
Kanye West is being represented by Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, which is noted as one of the most prestigious and selective law firms in the world.
