Kanye West has been sued by former child soul singer Ricky Spicer over claims of copyright infringement.
Ricky Spicer, who sang with The Ponderosa Twins Plus One, sued Kanye West in Manhattan Supreme Court in New York City on Monday, alleging the rapper used his vocals without permission.
In the suit, Ricky Spicer claims Kanye West sampled the vocals from his former group’s song Bound for his hit Bound 2, which appears on his Yeezus album.
The lawsuit also targets Kanye West’s label Roc-A-Fella Records and three others. Ricky Spicer is seeking unspecified damages.
