Kanye West Sued Over Album Samples
Kanye West was sued over some music samples used in his album- "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy". Executives at the TufAmerica label claim that Kanye sampled parts of "Hook And Sling, Part 1" by Eddie Bo. They allege that Kanye put the sample into 'Who Will Survive In America?', 'Lost In the World', AND in the video for 'Runaway'. TufAmerica execs claim that Kanye's label paid a license fee for a portion of the track, but didn't settle the necessary agreements to use the other sample.
