EXCLUSIVE: Converted Kanye West Settles Claim He Stole "The Spirit Of Marcus Garvey"
(AllHipHop News) Kanye West has made peace with a songwriter from Guyana, who claims the rapper literally stole the "spirit" of Marcus Garvey.
The trio then worked Bobb-Semple's sampled vocals into The Kids See Ghost track "Freeee (Ghost Town, Pt. 2)," with no permission on the album, which debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 chart.
But Kanye abruptly stopped fighting the lawsuit earlier this week, when his lawyer announced he had settled with Ronald Oslin-Bobb Semple.
The entire lawsuit has been dismissed without prejudice.
Now Kanye West just has to finalize the settlement with the court within the next 30 days and the battle with Bobb-Semple will be officially over.
