(CelebrityAccess) – Kayne West has filed a pair of lawsuits against EMI Music Publishing and Roc-a-Fella Records, UMG Recordings, Def Jam and Bravado International Group, according to THR.

The complaints were filed on Friday (January 25) in Los Angeles Superior Court.

West is reportedly seeking declaratory relief plus alleging unjust enrichment on the part of the song publisher and record companies. He is also seeking a transfer of property.

EMI has served as the rapper/songwriter’s publisher since 2003, shortly before the release of his massively successful debut album, The College Dropout.

West is being represented by Quinn Emanuel litigator Robert Schwartz.
