kanye west syl johnsonChicago soul singer Syl Johnson is saying that his song, sound, and likeness was used on one of the songs on Kanye West’s new album “Watch the Throne,” without his permission.

Johnson claims one of the songs on the deluxe edition of the album, Kanye’s “The Joy,” uses vocals from his classic track “Different Strokes” without getting the proper clearance for the sample.

Johnson added that he was particularly surprised that West didn’t reach out to him, since his daughter Syleena Johnson was an acquaintance of West and sang the vocals for “All Fall’s Down” from West’s debut album “The College Dropout.”

Credits on the album inaccurately list The Numero Group as the publisher of the sampled song, and more importantly, Johnson isn’t getting paid for the use of his vocals on the track.
