News: Jay-Z & Kanye West Settle Copyright Lawsuit
The Throne & Syl Johnson have settled their legal differences out court, TMZ has learned. Syl Johnson accused the rap duo of illegally sampling his track “Different Strokes” on “The Joy” from Watch The Throne.
Syl says that Kanye had initially tried to get the sample cleared for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, but couldn’t get it cleared in time. Obviously, the sample didn’t get cleared for WTT either.
Details of the settlement are still unknown.
