A deejay who was sued earlier this year by Kanye West to keep him from distributing some of West's unreleased songs filed a countersuit against him
These coming days will become a tough day for the Gold Digger as he has to face a countersuit filed by a deejay he had been sued earlier this year to keep him from distributing some of his unreleased songs. In his lawsuit Eric "E-Smoove" Miller claims that rapper Kanye West worked for and with him in the mid-1990s on recordings of 10 songs, including "Ho!!!" and "Stop Frontin'."
In other words, Miller disputes West's contention that the two didn't have a contract. About which West's lawyers previously stated that Miller offered the songs to distributors using a fake contract with West's fake signature. Thus, the singer seeks at least $1.3 million and to ban Miller from using his name or voice in connection with the recordings.
On the other way around, Miller, whose lawsuit filed on Oct. 28, claims he co-authored the recordings and that West agreed his company would own them. He is, in return, seeking $10.48 million and wants to be allowed to profit from the recordings.
