New York recording label, TufAmerica, is suing Kanye West, claiming the Grammy award winning rapper illegally used portions of a 1969 song by New Orleans legend Eddie Bo on his 2010 album "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy." According to The Hollywood Reporter, TufAmerica's complaint says two tracks on the album, "Who Will Survive in America?" and "Lost in the World" — include a bit of "Hook and Sling, Part 1" by Eddie Bo, which TufAmerica says it bought the rights to more than 15 years ago. While the label admits that West paid a licensing fee of $62,500, they claim the Louis Vuitton Don "failed and refused to enter into written license agreements that accounted for their multiple other uses of ['Hook and Sling']."

The label is seeking undisclosed damages for copyright infringement.
