Kanye West Sued Over Alleged Illegal Sampling
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 09.30.2012



Kanye West has been sued by a record label claiming that he illegally sampled songs for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Billboard reports that TufAmerica has sued West over a sample from the 1969 Eddie Bo song "Hook and Sling, Part 1," which is used on the tracks "Who Will Survive in America?" and "Lost in the World."

In the suit, filed in federal court in Manhattan, TufAmerica claims that they were paid $62,500 by Roc-A-Fella and Universal Music Group, but "failed and refused to enter into written license agreements that accounted for their multiple other uses of ['Hook and Sling']." The song appeared in the video for "Lost in the World" video as well as the mini-film for "Runaway." The label wants undisclosed damages for copyright infringement.

TufAmerica, incidentally, is the label that filed suit against Beastie Boys the day before Adam Yauch died of cancer over samples used on the group's 1980s albums License to Ill and Paul's Boutique.
