Kanye West's Beautiful Dark Twisted LAWSUIT!

| Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersKanye WestKim Kardashian


Awwww sh*t, someone sampled something they weren't a-supposed to!! Lucccyyyy Kannyyyee!!!

Kanye West and his ladylove Kim Kardashian may have to put their baby making plans on hold, as it seems the man who once walked with Jesus is being slapped with a copyright infringement lawsuit for samples used in 2010 smash success My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy!

New York based label TufAmerica claims 'Ye used snippets of Hook and Sling, Part 1 by New Orleans singer & pianist Eddie Bo, a tune which the label owns the rights to. Kanye sampled the song in Who Will Survive in America? and Lost in the World.

The lawsuit alleges that while Kanye DID pay an agreed sum of $62,500 to use the song, he “failed and refused to enter into written license agreements that accounted for their multiple other uses of [‘Hook and Sling’].”

The sample can also be found in Ye's short film based on the tune Runaway, and in the Lost in the World music video.

Dayum, all this and a bag of chips supposed sex tapes too? Kanye's got some explainin' to do!

    Getting sued and being blackmailed over a sextape is the least of his worries.
    KimYe is on App Store.

    Might want to hold off on the baby until Kim's divorce is final.

    Eddie Bo wants money for a 2 second snippit? Eddie Bo should be honored that he even sampled it. Otherwise 99.9% of Americans still wouldn't know who the f he is…

    disgusting people. Go away, Kardashians! Seriously, you're just adding to the horrible image that most people already have of America. You've become a joke of a family. No one in Hollywood will ever take you seriously.

    Two sicko fame whores joined together to sell out to us for a MASSIVE profit! We (the general public) are such suckers! After their magazine covers about their new love, pregnancy, commitment issues, split up, they will be set up for even more millions.

    Couldn't happen to a nastier piece of ghetto filth- Kanye's daddy was one of Frank Lucas little errand boys.
    Kanye West has no talent, no ability and no originality. When he can SING without an AUTOTUNE, phone me honeys.
    PS LOVE the ghetto ho look Kim, very becoming.
