Kanye West's eagerly anticipated album, 'Yandhi' may be pushed back even further due to clashes between West and the label.
According to The Blast, Kanye is itching to be free and he and his legal team have filed a third lawsuit, "following legal wars launched against Roc-A-Fella records and EMI."
The Blast reports that the newly filed court documents "focuses on Ye’s relationship with Bravado merchandising and Island Def Jam." The suit also claims the companies have been exploiting “one of the world’s most iconic, multi-faceted, and productive talents.”
Kanye wants to be off the label and he wants the judge to free him from Def Jam, the label he has been signed to for over a decade and a half.
“Even if the contracts were not unfair (they are), even if their terms valued Mr. West’s contributions in line with the breathtaking success he has achieved for these companies (they do not) and even if the companies had not unpaid Mr. West what they owe him (they have), he would be entitled to be set free from its bonds," the docs state.
He also wants to own his masters and claims that they owe him millions. Kanye is desperate to get free. We are doubtful that the label will just let him walk.
