Kanye West is an American born rap star that originaly found his fame rapping to the beat in inner city USA. After making a break through in the music industry Kanye has gone on to create several top awards. Kanye is currently engaged to Kim Kardashian.
Though sampling has long been a staple of hip hop music, occasionally it leads to legal trouble. Such is the case for rapper Kanye West, whose songs "Who Will Survive in America?" and "Lost in the World" used New Orleans singer Eddie Bo's 1969 song, "Hook and Sling."
Even though Yeezy's label Roc-A-Fella paid a $62,500 license fee for the rights to sample the tune, TufAmerica alleges that the parties "failed and refused to enter into written license agreements that accounted for their multiple other uses of [the song]."
Kicking off their weekend with the latest runway trends, Kanye West and Olivia Palermo headed over to the Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2013 Collection show during Paris Fashion Week on Friday (September 28).
Although they arrived separately, both stars donned all-black ensembles - as the "Mercy" rapper paired a blazer with leather pants as he sat alongside Gaia Repossi and Leelee Sobieski while the former "City" star opted for a black dress and leather jacket.
