A Texas pastor is suing Kanye West for taking one of his sermons and using it in a rap tune, according to local reports.
Bishop David Paul Moten said the hip-hop legend used the religious address without his permission in the song “Come to Life,” according to the Dallas Morning News.
In the song, Moten can be heard saying “My soul cries out, ‘Hallelujah,’ and I thank God for saving me. I, I thank God,” the suit, filed in Dallas County, reportedly says.
The lawsuit names Universal Music Group, Def Jam Recordings, G.O.O.D. Music, and West as defendants, according to the Dallas Morning News.
