Back in 2013, a singer named Ricky Spicer filed a lawsuit against Kanye West for use of the sample in 'Bound 2'. It comes originally from 'Bound', a track by the '70s soul group Ponderosa Twins Plus One (of which Spicer was a part) and pretty crucial to Kanye's whole composition and arrangement in 'Bound 2'.

Anyway: that lawsuit has now been settled, Billboard reports. Paperwork dated from March was apparently filed to a New York court on 11th May, discontinuing the suit; previously Spicer – whose voice can be clearly heard, though altered, during the Kanye song's chorus – claimed he remained without compensation in spite of the song's success.
