    Kanye's On the Offense, Takes On TIME and 'Shiesty' DJ

    On Monday, Kanye West got on the offense -- first stopping by 106 & Park to announce his new article "approval policy" and then filing a lawsuit to stop Chi-town DJ Eric "E-Smoove" Miller from releasing material that he recorded as a teenager.

    Kanye appeared on 106 & Park to talk about the upcoming release of his album, Late Registration, when he expressed his feelings about a quote in Time Magazine that said that he used to "leave meetings crying." The misquotation led Kanye to state his new policy -- to approve all articles before they run.

    Later, Kanye filed a 20-paged civil lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court in Chicago claiming DJ Eric Miller and his Focus Music Group forged a recording agreement to try and land a distribution deal for nine unreleased tracks written and performed by Mr. West. The complaint goes onto state that shortly after Kanye landed 10 Grammy nominations for his debut album, "The College Dropout," Miller approached John Galt Entertainment in Nashville for a $450,000 advance o distribute the tracks.

    According to Kanye, he never had any written or oral contract with Miller and refused to approve any releasing of the music recorded. However, Miller's attorney claimed that the defendants did not need permission to release the masters at all.

    Kanye West is suing for violation of his publicity, privacy, and trademark rights amongst other claims. He is asking for the court to void the fraudulent recording agreement and award $100,000 in general damages and at least $200,000 in punitive damages.

    Miller's attorney, Mark Levinsohn with Epstein, Levinsohn, Bodine, Hurwitz & Weinstein in New York, could not be reached for comment.
