Kanye West, Kid Cudi, and Ty Dolla $ign are reportedly being sued by an entertainer, who has claimed that they sampled his voice on Kids See Ghosts without his permission.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Ronald Oslin Bobb-Semple is suing the three rappers, as well as Def Jam and Universal Music.
The performer has alleged that his vocals were used in the track ‘Freeee (Ghost Town Pt. 2)’ – and he’s claimed that they never got permission to do so.
The vocals were reportedly sampled from his 2002 recording called “The Spirit of Marcus Garvey (Garvey Speaks to An All-Black Audience).”
Ronald has claimed that the rappers “exploited the actual voice, words and performance of Bobb-Semple, without authorization”.
He’s allegedly suing for unspecified damages.
Kanye is currently involved in another lawsuit, in which he has allegedly accused EMI of attempting to bind him to a potential lifetime of “servitude”.
