Presser saying its an unauthorized copy of a 1969 song he wrote when he was in the band Omega. He had no inkling his song was being used until West's lawyer emailed him soon after marketing began, indicating that West would like to work out a deal and gave him 24 hours to respond.
West's lawyers later sent Presser a $10,000 check and insisted that he grant a license. But Presser never cashed the check, he's suing for $2.5 million.
