The prisoner says that he then heard on the radio the song Watch The Throne with Kanye West, which used his lyrics. Further, he says that Jay-Z never paid him a dime for his work.
Phillips accuses Jay-Z of stealing his music, his rap style and his image through the lyrics he wrote.
According to the lawsuit, Phillips also communicated with Beyonce and he exchanged lyrics with her as well that she used on her album. Both told him they would pay him for his work but never did. He is suing the powerhouse couple for $50 MILLION dollars each.
