Carlos Young's curator insight, August 13, 2013 8:54 PM

Being the artists, Kanye should've known to get this sample cleared. As a beat producer myself, I make it clear that any samples I create in a beat must be cleared by the artists so that I can avoid liability. I'm sure Kanye knew that it would have caught up to him eventually.
