Kanye West Sued for Alleged Copyright Infringement Over Use of Sample in Flowers on Donda 2 Album

Kanye West has been sued for alleged copyright infringement over use of a sample on a track from his Donda 2 album.

Ye, 45, was accused in a lawsuit filed Wednesday in New York federal court of using a sample from the 1986 Marshall Jefferson house track Move Your Body, aka The House Music Anthem, without prior permission or paying compensation in his song Flowers, according to an article on Thursday by Billboard.

The sample is ‘repeated at least 22 times throughout’ the song, according to a complaint filed by Jefferson’s publisher Ultra International Music Publishing in US District Court in New York.

Jefferson, 62, wrote and performed Move Your Body that peaked at number 34 on Billboard’s Dance Singles Sales chart in August 1986.

Move Your Body first became popular in Jefferson’s hometown of Chicago before it was released by Trax Records in July 1986.

‘I’ve been sampled thousands of times. There is a right way and a wrong way to go about it. Getting done by another artist, a BLACK artist, a fellow Chicagoan without acknowledgment is disappointing,’ Jefferson said in a statement to Billboard.

The lawsuit filed by attorneys Christine Lepera and Bradley J. Mullins of the firm Mitchell Silberberg & Knupp also named English entrepreneur Alex Klein, 31, as a defendant along with his company Kano Computing Limited.

R. Kelly Sentenced to 30 Years in Prison in Sex Trafficking Case

Disgraced R&B superstar R. Kelly was sentenced Wednesday to 30 years in prison, months after he was convicted on all nine counts against him in a high-profile sex trafficking case.

U.S. District Court Judge Ann Donnelly handed down the sentence in a Brooklyn courtroom after several of Kelly’s victims angrily addressed the convicted sex offender at the hearing.

Donnelly minced no words as she threw the book at once-beloved performer.

“You were a person who had great advantages — worldwide fame and celebrity and untold money,” she said. “You took advantage of their hopes and dreams, holding teenagers in your house trapped. You were at the top of your organization and you raped and beat them, separated them from their families and forced them to do unspeakable things.”

Victims who addressed the court on Wednesday said they barely had any will to live during their time under Kelly’s control.
