Kanye West has settled a lawsuit by a Hungarian rock singer who accused the hip-hop star of sampling one of his best-known works without permission for the 2013 song "New Slaves".The accord resolves claims that 85 seconds, or one-third, of "New Slaves," which appeared on the No. 1 album "Yeezus," was a copy of the plaintiff Gabor Presser's 1969 song "Gyongyhaju Lany," which translates roughly as "Pearls in Her Hair". The parties settled on Monday, two days before West was scheduled for a deposition.
