Kanye West is suing Roc-A-Fella Records,
West filed 2 lawsuits Friday. The first one is against Roc-A-Fella, claiming he signed an exclusive recording agreement with the company. Kanye also filed a lawsuit against EMI April Music, claiming they owe him over a music dispute.
According to the lawsuit, in 2003, the year before he released "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.
