Chicago Artist Malik Yusef & Kanye West Mess Up Big Time With New Album

Malik Yusef who planned on releasing his new album titled Kanye West & Malik Yusef Present: Good Morning & Goodnight was derailed because his label neglected to obtain proper clearance rights from labels and artists.

Universal Records quickly put a halt to the release, declaring that Kanye's name could not be used in the title and a few songs recorded with West could not be placed on the album.

More then that, label reps for Jennifer Hudson, Michelle Williams, KRS-One, Common and others were furious when they found out clearance had not been sought for the songs that their artists had made guest cameos on.

Additionally the track Chicago stolen from a local producer Hassan was never credited and the two will be appearing in court next month. Cease & Desist Orders piled up but ignoring these issues G.O.O.D. Music went ahead and released the album to minimal sales. Currently the RIAA and record labels are pursuing G.O.O.D. Music for any and all royalties collected.

Malik Yusef who recently signed a major publishing deal with Universal has many disgruntled employees who have not been paid for their hard work, but he has been seen in the clubs of Chicago with wads of cash buying drinks for everyone and spending lavishly.
