Jay-Z & Kanye West Settle Lawsuit Over Unauthorized Sample

Jay-Z and Kanye have come to an agreement with Syl Johnson over an uncleared sample in "The Joy."

Jay-Z and Kanye West have finally settled a lawsuit stemming over an uncleared sample.

Last October, Syl Johnson sued the rappers for using an uncleared sample of his song, "Different Strokes," on the song "The Joy." As TMZ reports, Johnson claimed that Kanye tried to get the song cleared for his solo album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, and when that fell through, he used the sample on Watch The Throne, thus provoking Johnson to sue.

However, legal documents filed in Illinois federal court this week dismiss the case because the two sides came to an agreement.
