Kanye West and  a songwriter from Guyana have settled their differences over the “spirit” of Marcus Garvey.  According to AllHipHop,  an actor by the name of Ronald Oslin Bobb-Semple had a dispute with Kanye West, Kid Cudi, and Ty Dolla $ign, over a claim that they stole from his 2002 vocal performance of “The Spirit Of Marcus Garvey”.

The vocal  of Bobb-Semple’s was sampled without permission on “Freeee” (Ghost Town, Pt. 2) from the project The Kids See Ghost. The song was released and debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 chart. Kanye West stopped fighting the lawsuit earlier this week and has settled with Ronald Oslin-Bobb Semple which has been dismissed without prejudice. He is given thirty days to finalize the agreement.
