In the suit, Presser explains that right before the song was released in 2013, Ye reached out for permission to use it. Presser agreed, but it appears that this was a verbal consent, as he adds that he was “under the assumption a formal deal would be laid out.” Kanye sent a $10k advance check, but Presser says he never cashed the check.
