The child singer of a 1970 song is suing Kanye West, claiming the rapper sampled his song without permission, CNN reports.

Ricky Spicer, now 56, was 13 when his group the Ponderosa Twins Plus One recorded “Bound.”

He claims the song “Bound 2” on West’s album “Yeezus” uses his voice at least four times, and he is seeking compensation for copyright infringement.
