Kanye West’s Collaborator Takes the Blame for Sample Used Without Permission: ‘I’m Sorry’

Kanye West just dropped his highly anticipated album Ye on Friday, and the singer is facing even more controversy over his first track, “I Thought About Killing You.”

Berlin-based record label PAN accused West, 40, of using an unauthorized sample of Kareem Lotfy’s Fr3esh album from the mono no aware compilation.

“It’s sadly another case of an artist who capitalizes on culture without any original ideas and because culture trickles up, this means we are all basically working for him,” the label’s founder Bill Kouligas told Pitchfork.

Adding that his company may pursue legal action, “Everything leads to him, he’s the ultimate narcissist,” says Kouligas.

While a rep for West had no comment on the report, his frequent collaborator Francis and the Lights, who co-produced the song alongside Benny Blanco, has already taken the blame.

“Yo I’m sorry I added that beat at the last minute and we’re reaching out now,” Francis tweeted. “Do you want to know anything else about it? It’s not Kanye or anyone else’s doing but mine so please direct any aggression or criticism at me.”

West’s seven-track album — featuring Kid Cudi, Ty Dolla $ ign, John Legend and a surprise feature by Nicki Minaj — addresses everything from mental health and drugs to Tristan Thompson‘s cheating scandal and wife Kim Kardashian West‘s reaction to his infamous declaration that slavery was a choice.

Love Kim Kardashian West’s Style? This Budget-Friendly Line Is Going to Be Your Everything

Over the past few years something chic has been happening to Kim Kardashian West‘s style (and it may or may not have to do with the Kanye closet rehaul that left her in tears). Gone are the loud animal prints and sparkle of her 2009 closet, replaced by sleek, minimalistic outfits in neutral and monochrome palettes. And while the majority of Kim’s actual wardrobe is high-end designer, Australian label Bossa has captured the same vibe with wallet-friendly prices (and the brand ships to the U.S.!).

kim-kardashian-body-suit-pencil-skirt-outfit

Last summer Kim lived in a bodysuit, showing favoritism to the American Apparel style she rocked several times. Bossa’s got an equally steamy version, plus an elongated faux suede pencil skirt that really finishes off the look (the entire outfit will run you a little over $ 150 in U.S. dollars).

kim-kardashian-turtleneck-black-dress

Kim’s LBDs usually hit at her calf, and while some have plunging necklines, others are actually pretty covered up. She foreshadowed this fall’s favorite neckline (get ready for the turtleneck trend!) by rocking a slim-fitting frock with a mock neck. Bossa’s similar version is online here.

kim-kardashian-long-vest-outfit

And while KKW loves her some pencil skirts and tight dresses, she’s also cut a stylish figure in wide-leg trousers. She covered up her creamy pair with a long vest in the same palette, but the look works in contrasting colors too. The Aussie brand created the same ensemble with a tank dress that doubles as a vest when worn open.

The coup de grace for Kim style lovers? There’s a high-gloss pink dress on offer that looks to be very much inspired by the latex looks she’s rocked.

So, Kim Kardashian Rented Out Staples Center For Kanye West’s Birthday

The typical birthday involves maybe a nice meal and some presents that come from the heart but aren’t actually all that useful or cool. Kanye West’s birthday is not the average birthday.

And so, Mrs. West, otherwise known as Kim Kardashian, decided to do something a bit more impressive to celebrate Kanye’s special day on Monday. Like rent out Staples Center so the 38-year-old rapper and all his buddies could act like they were Lakers or Clippers or something for a day.

Kim rented out staples bitch!!! Him and his boys are going to ball!!!! Happy birthday Yeezy!!!!

A photo posted by Khloé (@khloekardashian) on

Basically everyone was there, according to TMZ: Russell Westbrook, John Wall, Justin Bieber, James Harden, 2 Chainz, etc. Even John Legend was there singing happy birthday in what honestly looks like a bit of an awkward scene.

There was an NBA finals cake, and Kanye West blowing out an NBA finals cake, and Kim Kardashian taking a photo of Kanye West blowing out an NBA finals cake.

Seems fun. Supposedly it all cost Mrs. West $ 110,000. Oh, and Kylie Jenner was there too, just chilling. Normal day, you know?

Sisters @ the staple center !

Seth Rogen Says Performing At Kanye West’s Wedding Isn’t The Best Idea

Last week we learned that Kanye West asked Seth Rogen and James Franco to perform their parody of his song “Bound 2” the night before the rapper weds Kim Kardashian. The performance isn’t actually happening, because, well it would just be kind of awkward for everyone involved.

“Me and Franco got a call, [West] said he was thinking it might be funny if he performed it at the wedding and we came out on a motorcycle. And we were like, ‘And then what do we do?’ And then we were all like, ‘I don’t know,'” Rogen told Ellen DeGeneres during an appearance on “The Ellen Show” on Thursday, May 1.

“That’s probably not going to be very funny then,” Rogen said they decided, adding that West realized he would just be rapping with Rogen and Franco for five minutes.

The 32-year-old, who stars in the upcoming movie “Neighbors,” was relieved they all arrived at the same conclusion, but added if West really wanted him at his wedding, there would be no hesitation.

“I would be there naked, with a shirt off, however he wanted me, on a motorcycle, doing whatever he needed,” Rogen said DeGeneres. “Because I’m a fan. That’s just as a fan.”
