Wow. According to RollingStone, Kanye West is currently being sued by Ricky Spicer, over the use of his group Ponderosa Twins Plus One’s record “Bound”. The song is the latest single from his LP, Yeezus. Yesterday, Ricky Spicer filed a suit yesterday in Manhattan Supreme Court stating Kanye West sampled his record without permission.

“Mr. Spicer’s voice is sampled exactly as he recorded it and his voice… is heard several times,” charges the suit, which requests that West pay Spicer or cease and desist in use of his vocals. It also names West’s record labels Roc-A-Fella Records, Universal Music Group, Island Def-Jam Music and Rhino Entertainment as defendants.

Marco Polo released a great project with PA 2: The Director’s Cut available on iTunes now. One of the records off the effort is this jawn right here which details the major struggles Detroit has been stricken with over the past decade or so – specifically a 5 year span, which Marco touches on below.

Since I wrote this piece many of these situations have grown exponentially worse. Bob Bobb, who was then Emergency Financial Manager of Detroit Public Schools that shut down dozens of schools and threatened to displace the block in verse one, went on to Stockton, California where he filed for that city’s bankruptcy in 2012, stripping away at lifelong city workers’ pensions. One year later, Detroit was forced to file for Bankruptcy, threatening thousands of pensions and city assets including parks, schools and even the art collection.
