Texas Pastor David Paul Moten Sues Kanye West for Sampling His Sermon Without Permission in Song “Come to Life” — BCNN1 Encourages Pastor David Paul Moten to Call Off This Lawsuit. If You Approach Your Brother Kanye West Right, He Might Give You a Donation Larger Than What You Are Suing Him For.

Rapper Kanye West, also known as Ye, is being sued by a Texas pastor after he claimed parts of a sermon he gave were sampled without his permission.

Bishop David Paul Moten claimed that 70 seconds of his material were used on the track “Come to Life” from West’s Grammy-nominated album Donda.

Moten is also suing G.O.O.D Music, Def Jam Recordings, and UMG Recordings over the use of his sermons in the song.

The “Donda” album was released in late August 2021, and the track “Come to Life” was produced by West, Jeff Bhasker, Warryn Campbell, Mark Williams, and Raul Cubina.
