Kanye West Sued Over “Bound 2″ Sample

Ricky Spicer, 56, was shocked when he heard his own voice on the radio… on a Kanye West song. The song was “Bound 2,” and it features a vocal sample of Spicer singing “Bound,” a song he recorded when he was 12 years old and lead singer of the soul group The Ponderosa Twins Plus One. The Daily News reports that Spicer claims he never gave permission to Kanye or the label, and now he wants to be paid.

The suit also names Roc-A-Fella Records, Island Def-Jam Music, Rhino Entertainment, and Universal Music Group as defendants. Hear “Bound” and Bound 2″ below.
