Kayne West and Jay-Z Settle Legal Dispute Out Of Court

Written by Lisa Morrison on March 13, 2012

In an update on this story on Kayne West and Jay-Z’s legal battle with Syl Johnson, it has been reported that the duo have settled out of court for an undisclosed sum.

The 70s soul singer Johnson filed charges against Kayne and Jay-Z in October last year for their allegedly unlawful use of a sample from his track Different Strokes on their single The Joy, which features on their latest collaborative album, Watch the Throne.

American website TMZ announced that the rappers have reached a settlement with Johnson, who has previously filed legal suits against Michael Jackson and Cypress Hill.

So far, no comment from either party has been made regarding the settlement.
