KANYE SUES ROC-A-FELLA RECORDS/EMI

Kanye filed two lawsuits on Friday, one against Roc-A-Fella, where “he’s asking for a declaration of his rights over a dispute he’s having and he wants money.” And a second suit against EMI April Music.

Ye says he signed a contract with EMI in 2003, and by the end of 2011, the rapper had written more than 200 songs and gave the rights to EMI. In the “heavily redacted” suit, Kanye wants a judge to declare his rights under the contract for money.

Jay-Z sold his Roc-a-Fella shares back in 2004 and is no longer involved in the company. A source says Ye’s lawsuit has nothing to do with Jay.
