The G.O.O.D MUSIC rapper was recently sued by TufAmerica recording label for allegedly using illegal samples on YEEZY’s album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
According to the Huffington Post, WEST used clips from EDDIE BO‘s 1969 song “Hook and Sling Part 1″ on is “Who Will Survive America” and “Lost In The World” tracks.
TufAmerica is suing for an undisclosed amount although they were already paid $62,500 by Roc-A-Fella Records and Universal Music Group. TufAmerica believes that both companies “failed and refused to enter into written license agreements that accounted for multiple uses of the song.”
KANYE WEST, no stranger to copyright infringement suits, was also sued for similar copyright issues in 2010.
