Oops!

Kanye West is causing trouble again, but this time it'll cost him!

Ricky Spicer— the vocalist heard on Bound 2— has filed a lawsuit yesterday in NYC against the rapper for using his pipes on the jam without his permission.

YUP! While it was originally recorded over 40 years ago as part of the old school soul group the Ponderosa Twins Plus One, Ricky and his legal team are requesting Kanye pay up or cease-and-desist any trace of his vocals on the track.

The paperwork states:

"Mr. Spicer's voice is sampled exactly as he recorded it and his voice… is heard several times."

The self-proclaimed god has yet to respond, but he better get that checkbook ready quick!

Guess even Yeezus has to ask for authorization before using someone else's work!

Listen to the two versions and compare the OBVIOUS similarities yourself (below)!!!

    Captain Fraud strikes again. When are people going to understand that this dude is a fucking grift, a con, a fraud. Guy has about as much real natural talent as William Hung does.

    Is this a fucking joke? For all you stupid fucks who know nothing about music, Kanye did not steal this.. He sampled it. Please look up the term "sample" and learn. Thank you.

    Re: Ciarán – Sampling is stealing unless you have permission from the person (or publisher, whatever) you sampled from. I dont know about kanye but Rap artists have a long history of stealing music in the form of "samples" because most of them cant actually make music themselves. So they "sample" music from people that could make music. Rap music was basically music invented by black men who cant sing as good as the R&B guys and who cant write REAL poetry and who cant write actual music and who know nothing about life outside the hood, hoes and gangs. A true genius rapper would be an artist that can compose an orchestral piece and sing rhymes to it like pavarotti and write poetry like Samuel Taylor Coleridge. But that genius doesnt exist. Rap is a dumbed down kinda opera full of violent face punching thieves.

    Re: Ciarán – So you don't think that the original artist should be asked, or given any credit or money?
