Kanye West, Kid Cudi & Ty Dolla $ign are being accused of ripping off a veteran performer for one of their hit songs and now he wants them to pay up.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, veteran actor and performer Ronald Oslin Bobb-Semple is suing the three rappers, along with Def Jam and Universal Music.

Bobb-Semple claims in 2002, he created a recording entitled, “The Spirit of Marcus Garvey (Garvey speaks to an all-Black audience).” He claims his vocals were used in the “Freeee (Ghost Town Pt. 2).”

He says that Kanye West and Kid Cudi took his work and “exploited the actual voice, words and performance of Bobb-Semple, without authorization” on the 2018 song, which was released on their joint album.

The suit explains that “Bobb-Semple’s voice and authorship is heard in the introductory words of Freeee.” He claims they never got permission or paid him a dime.

Bobb-Semple is suing for unspecified damages and an injunction against them from continuing to profit off his work.
