American Rap Star Kanye Paid $100,000 To Hungarian Singer
American rap star Kanye West agreed in a recent out-of-court settlement to pay $100,000 to Hungarians Gábor Presser and Anna Adamis for using their composition “Gyöngyhajú lány” in his 2013 song “New Slaves”, the tabloid Blikk has reported.

The settlement was announced last week, but the amount of compensation was not revealed.

The Hungarian composers sued West in a US court last May, demanding $2.5 million. West originally gave them a cheque for $10,000, but they refused to cash it.
