West Sues Chicago DJ



Kanye West has filed a lawsuit accusing a Chicago DJ of possessing 10 unreleased songs that he produced before he was 18

Coincide with the release of his new album "Late Registration" Thursday, Hip-hop star Kanye West has filed a lawsuit accusing a Chicago DJ of possessing 10 unreleased songs that he produced before he was 18. The 20-page lawsuit, filed Monday in federal court in Chicago, claims Eric "E-Smoove" Miller, who helped record the songs before West became famous, improperly tried to distribute some of those master recordings earlier this year.

In details, the lawsuit mentions Miller to have falsely claimed he had a contract to distribute the music and thus tried to offer the songs, include "Ho!!!" and "Stop Frontin'," to distributors using a fake contract with West's fake signature. In the lawsuit, West seeks payment of no less than $1.3 million, while also demands that Miller cease from ever using his name or voice in connection with the master recordings. Miller, who owns Focus Music Group, not yet gives comment.
