Kanye West facing lawsuit by family of young girl on "Ultralight Beam"

A recent lawsuit against TIDAL claims that the company actually fabricated streaming numbers for the album, which they have denied.

One of the many joys of Kanye West's The Life of Pablo single "Ultralight Beam" is hearing the sample of that little girl praying in the very beginning.

The intro song on the album is a powerful blend of hip-hop and gospel.

In the original 44-second video clip, Natalie is seen in a auto, on her mother's lap, rocking back and forth and screaming about how "we don't want no devil in the house" and 'we want the lord'. However, he went to the wrong person. Unfortunately for Yeezy, that heavenly voice is now sending him into legal hell.

The rapper/producer had reportedly asked the girl's biological mother Alice Johnson for permission, instead of her legal parents.

According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, the Greens adopted Natalie in December 2012 and took over all parental rights.

Also, they say Kanye's team was supposed to send a written license agreement and payment to Alice, which they never did.

Hopefully, this gets sorted out as it sounds like it was just a misunderstanding.
