Kanye West Suing Roc-a-Fella and EMI


Last October Kanye West ranted on social media about Sony EMI's refusal to sell him back his publishing rights [click here if you missed that].

Now Yeezy is suing...

From The Hollywood Reporter
Kanye West has filed a pair of lawsuits in what may be an attempt to extradite himself from contracts and reclaim control over his career. One lawsuit is against EMI, the song publisher that has administered the rights to his songs since 2003, shortly before the hip-hop star released his debut album, The College Dropout. The other is against Roc-a-Fella Records, UMG Recordings, Def Jam and Bravado International Group.
The complaints filed on Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court are almost entirely redacted and so the basis of his legal actions are very mysterious.

Now I'm not a lawyer, but can someone force you to sell something to them if they don't want to?

He needs money. Why did he wait 16 years to get his publishing?

This is all because of the diss song Jay Z put on The Games album.

10:09 Jay Z don’t even own Roc-a-Fella. He sold it a few years ago, so this lawsuit has nothing to do with him.
