A producer who worked with Kanye west on his song “New Slaves,” is suing the rapper because he wasn’t paid enough, according to reports.

According to TMZ.com, Kanye received permission to use a sample from Gabor Presser, a composer from Hungaria did a deal with Kanye so he could use the well-known musician’s work.

The problem is, the rapper was supposed to follow up and drill down on some of the terms of the agreement, but he never did.

Instead, Kanye released “New Slaves” on his 2013 album Yeezus, and now he is facing a $2.5 million lawsuit.
