Kanye West - Kanye West Hit With Copyright Lawsuit

Rapper Kanye West has been hit with a lawsuit over his hit 2005 single Gold Digger.

Trena Steward and Lorenzo Pryor have accused the hip-hop star of sampling their father's tune Bumpin' Bus Stop on the track without permission, and now they are seeking millions of dollars in damages for copyright infringement.

The siblings filed legal papers in California on Friday (05Apr13) on behalf of their late Thunder & Lightning singer father David Pryor, who transferred over the song rights to his children after he recorded the tune in 1974, according to AllHipHop.com.
