Tyga - Tyga's Album Recalled Over Unauthorised King Sample

Rapper Tyga's upcoming album has been recalled from American retailers due to an unapproved sample of civil rights leader Martin Luther King, JR., according to a report.
Tyga's new project, Careless World: Rise of the Last King, was due to hit U.S. stores on Tuesday (21Feb12), however, due to a complaint from the late activist's estate, bosses at Best Buy and Amazon have been ordered to return all of their shipments.
According to HipHopDX.com, the star's title track, Careless World, features a recording of King delivering a speech but the content was never cleared by his estate executors, resulting in a copyright dispute.
Tyga's record label executives are now scrambling to correct the problem ahead of the album's slated release and the rapper has since assured fans everything is still on schedule.
He writes in a series of posts on Twitter.com, "Damn... tryna (sic) pull my album out (of) stores. They dont (sic) want me to win huh... Lol (laugh out loud) Tues (Tuesday) Careless World will be everywhere!! Itunes,Target, Walmart, Best Buy!!"
