Kanye West Wants Sample Lawsuit Tossed, Citing KRS-One Quote: ‘You Will Not Get Sued’

With Kanye West facing a lawsuit for allegedly using an uncleared sample from the pioneering rap group Boogie Down Productions, his lawyers are making an unusual argument: That a Boogie Down founder promised all future rappers that “you will not get sued.”

In a motion filed Friday, lawyers for West (who legally changed his name to Ye) asked a Manhattan federal judge to toss out the November lawsuit, which claims West included an illegal sample from the 1986 song “South Bronx” on his own his “Life of the Party,” released on 2021’s Donda.
