Kanye West & Jay Z settled a lawsuit over their song "The Joy" on the "Watch The Throne" Cd which used a sample of "Different Strokes" by Sly Johnson uncredited and unpaid for.

Kanye tried to get the sample for his "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy," but didn't.  Then the song ended up on "Watch The Throne" without permission.  Sly noticed and went after Kanye and Jay Z for using it.

Kanye and Jay Z have recently come to terms with Sly reaching a settlement and Johnson has since dropped the lawsuit.-DocFB

  1. Didn’t they learn anything from Biz Markee? from his infringement lawsuit, leading to the album “all samples cleared”? why, in 2012-2011 would we still be stealing samples? especially when u r the biggest 2 names in Rap music?
