Prince Phillip Mitchell sued Kanye West in early 2018, claiming Yeezy sampled "If We Can't Be Lovers." without permission. His lawsuit also accused Solange of stealing from the same song for her "F--- the Industry" track, which is heavily based around a sample of "Everything I Am", so features some of the same elements. After leaking in 2008, Solange's track was originally supposed to appear on a mixtape titled "I Can't Get Clearance."TMZ
reports that Mitchell's lawsuit seeks damages and also wants Kanye and Solange to stop performing the songs and to put a halt to radio play as well. Mitchell is also asking for punitive damages, alleging that Solange and Kanye "willfully committed the infringement."
