Kanye West Hit With $800,000 Lawsuit Over Sample

(AllHipHop News) So far the summer of 2014 has been a season of celebration for Kanye West, but the Chicago rapper/producer did received some bad news recently. According to Radar Online, Ye is facing a lawsuit from The Persuaders producer Robert Poindexter.

In court docs filed in federal court, Poindexter accuses West of illegally using a sample from The Persuaders 1972 song “Trying Girls Out (the Composition)” for Ye’s “Girls Girls Girls (Remix)” off Freshman Adjustment 2. The sample was also used for Jay Z’s version which appears as a bonus track on The Blueprint.

Apparently a previous suit was thrown out earlier this year, because Kanye refused to respond. Poindexter is now seeking $800,000 in punitive damages in this case.

Late last year, West was also sued by singer Ricky Spicer from the group The Ponderosa Twins plus One. The former child star claimed Kanye used his voice on 1971’s “Bound” without permission for the Yeezus track “Bound 2.”
