Kanye West and song publisher EMI are still working legal clauses and sorting out details surrounding their cases against each other. Earlier in the year, Kanye sued EMI for still claiming to own Ye’s catalog with him stating that his contract should have ended in 2010. EMI counter-sued saying West because they said he was trying to get out of his contract unrightfully.
According to The Blast, West is trying to settle the issue privately, even asking for a 60-day extension to deal with the issues without media. With this, it looks like both parties “wish to explore the potential for a resolution of this action, and believe a stay would benefit the parties and the Court by enabling the parties to engage in meaningful discussions in an attempt to resolve this action without having to incur the burden and expense of litigation and motion practice.”
Kanye first sued EMI because he said he should’ve been released from his contract after 7 years.
We’ll see how this ultimately plays out but we wish the best for all sides involved.
