Kanye West Hit With Lawsuit!

Kanye West & Kim Kardashian Shopping In Miami

A one-time child soul singer has slammed Kanye West with a lawsuit!

Ricky Spicer, 56, is charging that the rapper used his voice without asking on “Yeezus.” Spicer (as anyone would be) was super surprised to hear himself on West’s single, “Bound 2,” which debuted at No. 1 in June.

“Mr. Spicer’s voice is sampled exactly as he recorded it and his voice … is heard several times,” said the suit, filed Monday in Manhattan Supreme Court.

Spicer is demanding that West give him the appropriate compensation or cease and desist from using his voice. Pretty reasonable, right? Besides West, the suit fingers Roc-A-Fella Records, Island Def-Jam Music, Rhino Entertainment and Universal Music Group as defendants.

Come on, Kanye. I know you think highly of yourself, but you can’t just use some dude’s voice without permission!

What’s his rant going to be now? WHY WON’T YOU LET ME BE GREAT… while using someone else’s voice.

I was actually wondering what the sample was that he used since that was the only listenable part of the song.

That is exactly what I thought! These fools are so stupid. They continue to sink to new levels of low.
