Former Child Star Sues Kanye West for ‘Bound 2′ Sample

Kanye West

‘Bound 2′ is the soulful track at the end of the experimental ‘Yeezus’ that had people temporarily praising the return of old school Kanye West. It’s also the track that got West sued.

The song features a prominent sample from Ponderosa Twins Plus One’s 1971 ‘Bound.’ Ricky Spicer, a group member who recorded the lyrics in 1969 when he was 12, is suing West for allegedly using the song without permission. Spicer is demanding financial compensation or West to cease using his voice on the track in a suit that also names┬áRoc-A-Fella Records, Rhino Entertainment,┬áIsland Def-Jam Music and Universal Music Group.

West hasn’t commented, but it wouldn’t be surprising if he does soon given how outspoken and unapologetic he’s been this year.
