Kanye West may have to use some of that Adidas money to pay off Ricky Spicer, a man who claims Ye sampled his 12-year-old vocal’s on the rapper’s hit song, “Bound 2.”
According to the Daily News, Spicer heard “Bound 2” for the first time on the radio, but says he never gave Mr. West his permission to use it. Spicer’s voice can be heard on Ponderosa Twins Plus One’s “Bound,” which makes the sample all the more odd since Ye’s version is titled, “Bound 2.”
The disgruntled singer is also taking action against Roc-A-Fella Records, Island Def-Jam Music, Rhino Entertainment, and Universal Music Group. You can listen to the original tune below … and honestly, we’re just saying … it ain’t all that bad. In fact, it’s kind of hot.
