Kanye West may claim to be a creative genius — but one singer begs to differ, reports radaronline.com.

The gossip reports that Robert Poindexter, a member of the ‘70s soul group The Persuaders, filed a federal lawsuit in New York on May 28, alleging that the rap superstar, 37, illegally sampled the band’s 1972 tune “Trying Girls Out (the Composition)” in his 2006 song “Girls Girls Girls Remix.”

“Kanye West has never acquired authorisation from me or the copyright owners of the composition,” Poindexter states in New York court documents. West “willfully infringed the composition copyright for private and financial gain by selling and distributing an untold amount of tangible and digital copies.”

Poindexter further alleges he previously attempted to sue West, but the case was tossed in January 2014 because the rapper refused to respond.
