Kanye West has settled Ricky Spicer’s 2013, miscommunication-nation lawsuit over the “Bound 2” sample, Billboard reports. Spicer, a former Ponderosa Twins Plus One singer whose voice can be heard on the song’s hook, wanted an injunction and damages because he claimed he had neither authorized the use of his vocals nor received any compensation for the track. Spicer sued West, along with Roc-A-Fella Records, Island Def-Jam Music, Rhino Entertainment, and Universal Music Group. The paperwork to discontinue the suit was reportedly filed to New York court earlier this month. At time of publication, however, other logistical details of the settlement (uh-huh, money) were unavailable.
