Kanye Finally Settles Lawsuit For Stealing Hungarian Song For His Own Hit “New Slaves”

Kanye West has settled out of court with Hungarian artist Gabor Presser, on charges that he unlawfully stole the 1969 hit, “The Girl With The Pearl Hair.”

(AllHipHop News) Kanye was accused of jacking Presser’s song and using it for his 2013 single, “New Slaves,” which was the breakout hit for his album, Yeezus.
Presser claimed he heard 85 seconds of his song being used illegally, just as Kanye started using portions of “New Slaves” in a 66-city promotion campaign.

Shortly after, one of West’s attorneys reached out to Presser to “work out a deal” as soon as possible.

Presser did not want to cut a quick deal or halt West’s tour, so he granted the rapper to use it if they came to terms afterward.

Kanye West and Pressers’ attorneys declined to comment.
