Kanye West has been sued for allegedly stealing the backing track he used for his awful song Bound 2 … the song he specially dedicated to Kim Kardashian.
Ricky Spicer – the lead singer of ’70s kiddie group Ponderosa Twins Plus One – is the one behind the lawsuit filed in Manhattan, claiming that Kanye ripped samples from off their song Bound, which was recorded back in 1970. Spicer was 12 years old at that time.
Spicer says neither ‘genius’ Kanye nor anyone from his camp approached him for permission to use his voice in Bound 2, saying he only recently heard the song on the radio and immediately heard his own voice in it.
Now Spicer is demanding that Kanye stop using the song and pay him an unspecified amount of money in damages.
Check out both songs below and you’ll quickly notice that Kanye clearly ripped samples from Ponderosa Twins Plus One. Besides, Bound is really a nice song, unlike Kanye’s.
Kanye has not yet responded to the new lawsuit.
