Kanye West is an extremely talented artist, who has shaped the rap scene we know today. Ye has a massive demand at performance shows. The rapper made headlines when he pulled out of Coachella back in April. It turns out that move is about to cost him millions of dollars.

According to The Blast, the Chicago native rapper is being sued by Phantom Labs. Plaintiff claimed that they have worked on several projects with Kanye, without getting paid. The lawsuit was filed by attorney Howard King.

Phantom Labs also claimed, they worked with the rapper on projects between June 2021 to March 2022. Kanye’s Sunday Service, for which he has become famous, was one of them. Another event was Ye’s listening party for “Donda 2”. A third event was the “Free Larry Hoover.”

Kanye’s canceled 2022 Coachella performance was one of them as well. Showrunners of the event were blindsided with Ye pulling out, but the rapper had his own reasons for doing so. Ye wanted to take time off to focus on his mental health at that time.

Phantom Labs is seeking $7 million in damages from Ye. Kanye West is well aware that the music industry can be a highly litigious place. We’ll have to wait and see how the rapper reacts to this challenge, or whether he just settles the lawsuit outside of court.
