Kanye West Sued Over ‘Good Life’ Sample
Maryland-based songwriter/producer Dayna "D'Mystro" Staggs claims he was living the 'Good Life' before Kanye West used an unauthorized sample of one of his tunes for his smash hit 'Good Life,' featuring T-Pain. Staggs names West, G.O.O.D. Life Music, BMI and Rocafella Records in the copyright infringement lawsuit filed on March 20, according to TMZ.com.
West's alleged failure to obtain permission to use the track isn't the only thing that's pissed off Skaggs. The unknown producer is also upset because West's song "contains vulgar and offensive" content, which the artist says "harms the reputation" of his tune. Skaggs is seeking a 85% of the proceeds from global sales of the track.
