Earlier this year, Kanye West sued song publisher EMI claiming his deal was unfair and illegal and wanted it voided. He believed the deal should have expired in 2010 and sued for ownership of his music catalog.
West accused EMI at the time of trying to lock him into a contract of “servitude” that could last his entire life and sought ownership of his catalogue. EMI then sued Kanye in March for attempting to get out of his contract. Kanye and EMI have now agreed to settle their legal battle, The Blast reports.
As part of their agreement, all claims will be dismissed, and the case will be closed. Both sides are expected to “draft and finalize a settlement agreement within ninety (90) days.”
Kanye’s new album Jesus Is King is reportedly out this Friday.
