The song from his Yeezus album, which he recorded a racy music video for featuring Kim Kardashian, uses a sample from a 1970's song and now the lead singer has filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against the rapper.

Ricky Spicer was 12 when he became lead singer for the Ponderosa Twins Plus One back in 1969. One year later, they recorded "Bound," according to the suit.

"Mr. Spicer's voice is sampled exactly as he recorded it, and his voice, altered by the defendants, is also heard several times," the lawsuit alleges.

In the album credits, Def Jam records says the song was licensed through Rhino Entertainment and Robinson Music Group.

The suit, which was filed in New York, names Kanye, Def Jam, Rhino, Roc-A-Fella Records and Universal Music Group as defendants for copyright infringement.

No word from Kanye or his camp just yet.
