Meanwhile, Jay-Z and Kanye West are being sued over an uncleared sample on their collaborative album ‘Watch The Throne’.

Syl Johnson is taking them to court for using a sample from his 'Different Strokes' on their track 'The Joy'. According to Johnson's publishers, the pair did so without his permission or any money changing hands. He has filed a lawsuit in Illinois over the sample.
