It looks like Kanye West is starting to get himself out of legal hot water!

The rapper, who had been sued for copyright infringement by the children of David Pryor after allegedly illegally sampling a portion of Pryor’s hit song “Bumpin’ Bus Stop” for “Gold Digger,” has reached a settlement, has learned exclusively.

As Radar previously reported, West’s team was looking to have the judge toss the lawsuit because they felt that the sample was too small to be considered an infringement. The plaintiffs, Trena Steward and Lorenzo Pryor, were seeking statutory damages and attorneys’ fees from the rapper.
