Kanye West and Pusha T Sued Over Sample on ‘DAYTONA’

A reportedly unauthorized sample on Pusha T‘s “Come Back Baby” from his 2018 album DAYTONA could see him and Kanye West in court.

According to documents seen by Complex, Kanye West and Pusha T have been named as defendants in a lawsuit filed by FAME Enterprises Inc. two weeks ago. The label claims the Grammy-nominated “Come Back Baby” features the following unauthorized portion of George Jackson’s 1972 record “I Can’t Do Without You.”
