Kanye West appears to have harmed himself by putting his Andre 3000 duet “Life Of The Party” on his Stem Player device… The song is now the subject of a lawsuit brought by the record label that owns a well-known track by KRS-Boogie One’s Down Productions.
According to legal documents obtained by TMZ Hip Hop, the corporation claims ownership of BDP’s legendary diss track “South Bronx” and alleges Ye never received permission to sample the song when he published the “Donda” additional track on the Stem Player.
According to the company, Ye and his partner Alex Klein sold approximately 11K Stem Players in the first 24 hours of their debut, earning over $2.2 million… However, they allege they never received authorization to use the sample, despite the fact that the company claims Ye’s team initially approached them to try to licence it.
According to the lawsuit, the parties never struck an agreement and Ye’s side eventually retracted its offer to licence it.
The suit claims, however, that Ye & Co. continued to actively market the tune that used the “South Bronx” sample to increase sales of “Donda” and the Stem Player.
Drake first shared the song ahead of their impromptu reunion at J Prince’s “Free Larry Hoover” performance.
The corporation is now attempting to prevent further usage of the music in the track and demands that Ye and co. hand over any revenues made from it. Many people informed KRS that his style was fantastic… we guess he wasn’t lying!!!
