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

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