Kanye West and Solange are reportedly facing lawsuits over claims that both artists illegally sampled from the same song.

TMZ reports that Leroy Mitchell, also known as Prince Phillip Mitchell, has accused both Solange and Kanye of sampling from his track "If We Can't Be Lovers" without his permission. The track was written back in 1970.

West allegedly sampled the song on his track "Everything I Am," which appeared on his Graduation album. Meanwhile, Solange allegedly sampled the same song on her track "F**k the Industry" which was set to appear on her Can't Get Clearance mixtape.

Mitchell has asked that both artists stop performing the songs and is looking to stop both tracks from getting radio play. He is also seeking punitive damages.
