Strike two for Kanye West.
Donna Summer’s estate is coming for the disgraced rapper after he apparently sampled one of her songs without permission. On Saturday, reps on the late star’s official Instagram page posted about the situation. They revealed that the Yeezy founder asked to use a snippet of one of her songs on Vultures and was denied. But then he went ahead and did it anyway:
If you’re not familiar with the single, this is it (below):
Donna passed away from lung cancer in 2012 at 63 years old, BTW.

And now, there are major issues with Ye sampling that track! As you can see (below), Summer’s estate was not at all happy with the usage:
They also tagged the Ghost Town rapper, Ty Dolla $ign, who is working on the Vultures album with Ye, Warner Chappell Music, and Universal Music Group… And also Sharon Osbourne, who is going through similar copyright infringement situation with her musician husband Ozzy Osbourne against Ye.
As we reported over the weekend, Sharon and Ozzy spoke out against the father of four after he asked permission to sample one of Ozzy’s live performances from the ‘80s but was denied. Like in the Donna situation, the rapper went ahead and did it anyways. That did not go over well with the Osbournes, who took a firm stance against the “antisemitic fool.”
Two for two… Big yikes! Thoughts, Perezcious readers?? Let us know in the comments down below!

last dance.Kanye West was sued by the estate of the late singer Donna Summer after the rapper used a sample of the late Queen of Disco’s 1977 hit “I Feel Love” without permission. According to court documents obtained by The Post, West, 46, approached the Summer estate and requested to use the sample for his track “Good (Don’t Die)” but was denied.
Donna Summer has sued Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign for the alleged illegal use of ‘I Feel Love’ on their collaborative album ‘Vultures 1’.According to the Associated Press, the copyright infringement lawsuit was filed in federal court in Los Angeles, California yesterday (February 27) by Summer’s husband Bruce Sudano in his role as executor of the estate.The suit alleges that representatives of West had asked permission to use the 1977 song on the track ‘Good (Don’t Die)’. However, it claims they were rejected because the Summer estate “wanted no association with West’s controversial history”.Sudano claims that West and Ty then approached Summer’s record label, Universal Music Enterprises, in a bid to be granted permission, but the label also denied their request.Ye and Ty have been accused of “shamelessly” including re-recorded parts of the hit that were “instantly recognisable” on the ‘Vultures 1’ cut.The suit states: “In the face of this rejection, defendants arrogantly and unilaterally decided they would simply steal ‘I Feel Love’ and use it without permission.”The lawsuit names both West and Ty as defendants, as well as Yeezy Record Label, LLC, the company Yzy Snd, and 10 Does.
