Kanye West Slapped with Another Lawsuit
Just weeks after settling a copyright infringement suit filed against him by Chicago blues man Syl Johnson [click here if you missed that], Kanye West finds himself back in the crosshairs, this time by Thin Line Between Love and Hate singer Robert Poindexter...
Robert Poindexter claims Kanye sampled his song 'Trying Girls Out' for the 'Girls Girls Girls' remix that appeared on Yeezy's Freshmen Adjustment 2 mixtape.
A cleared version of Trying Out Girls was used for the official Girls Girls Girls track which appeared on Jay Z's The Blueprint, but Poindexeter wants to be compensated for the version that appeared on the remix as well.
Poindexter says he tried to settle the issue without going to court but Kanye refused to cooperate.
Poindexter is seeking $500,000 in damages.
