Kanye West has been hit with a lawsuit from a former child soul singer over claims of copyright infringement. Ricky Spicer, who sang with The Ponderosa Twins Plus One aged 12, sued the rapper in Manhattan Supreme Court in New York City on Monday (23Dec13), alleging the Stronger hitmaker used his vocals without permission. In the suit, Spicer claims the star ripped off his former group's song Bound for his hit Bound 2, which appears on his Yeezus album. The suit also targets West's label Roc-A-Fella Records and three others. Spicer is seeking unspecified damages.
