Hip-Hop star Kanye West is entangled in a new lawsuit that was recently filed over his hit 2007 single “Stronger,” from the hit album Graduation.
Songwriter/producer Vincent “Vince P.” Peters filed the lawsuit on Friday (June 25th) in United States District Court For the Northern District of Illinois.
Peters claims he wrote the track in 2006 and played it for John Monopoly, a manager/business associate of Kanye West at his Chicago home on November 12th, 2006.
According to Peters, West recorded his own version of “Stronger” about seven months after a copy of the song was given to Monopoly.
Peters claims Kanye West copied significant portions of his song “Stronger” and incorporated them into his own version, which hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.
