Kanye West Sued Over “Ultralight Beam” Sample

Kanye West is currently being sued over a sample from his 2016 album The Life of Pablo.

Kanye is being sued by Andrew and Shirley Green, the parents of Natalie, the child that can be heard reciting a prayer on the track “Ultralight Beam” on Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo.

Kanye West had reportedly received permission to use the audio from Natalie’s biological mother, but according to the new lawsuit, the consent given is irrelevant since the Andrew and Shirley Green have had parental rights over Natalie since December 2012.

The Greens are currently seeking profits generated from ”Ultralight Beam” as well as an unspecified sum in damages.
