Donna Summer’s Estate Claims Kanye Used Edited Sample Without Permission on ‘Vultures’

The account tagged West, his Vultures collaborator Ty Dolla Sign, Warner Chappell Music and Universal Music Group. The post also tagged Sharon Osbourne, who just aired out her own grievances with West’s unauthorized sampling on behalf of her husband, rock legend Ozzy Osbourne. The couple believes that West sampled a live version of Black Sabbath’s “War Pigs” on Vultures after they previously denied his request to use the song.

Osbourne wrote on X that he refused to give West sampling permission because of Ye’s past antisemitic statements causing “untold heartache to many,” a message his wife supported.

“Kanye fucked with the wrong Jew this time,” Sharon told TMZ, calling West a “disrespectful antisemite” who “represents hate.”

West has a lengthy history of using unauthorized samples. Last year he settled a copyright dispute with musician Marshall Jefferson over the use of the 1986 song “Move Your Body” on the Donda 2 track “Flowers.”

The Osbournes have issued a cease and desist, and Summer’s estate might be next in line. So far Ye and Ty have yet to respond to either of these accusations.
