Kanye West vs. Vince P

Harder, better, faster, stolen? In June 2010, Virginia rapper Vince P claimed that Kanye West jacked some of the lyrics for his 2007 track "Stronger" from him. Vince sued Roc-A-Fella and UMG Recordings for copyright infringement and asked that they be stopped from selling, distributing or performing the song in addition to paying an unspecified amount in damages. West's lawyers asked that the case be dismissed since the songs were not similar enough to warrant Vince P's claim. An Illinois judge agreed, and the case was thrown out on March 3, 2011.
