Kanye West is reportedly facing legal action after another rapper has claimed that West's manager stole the hit 'Stronger' from him.

Rapper Vincent Peters, known as Vince P, is said to be suing for copyright infringement after West's manager John Monopoly gave Peters's demo of 'Stronger' to West, claiming that the track sounds very similar to his initial concept.

Peters states that his song was sent to Monopoly seven months before 'Stronger' was released.

According to X17Online, court documents allege that West's version "copies significant and important parts of Peter's lyrics identically or almost identically".

The papers also claim that both tracks carry the lines "that which does not kill me makes me stronger" and "can't wait much longer". A reference to Kate Moss is further used in both songs.

Peters is seeking damages and the blocking of selling, distributing and having West perform the song.
