Syl Johnson is cut from the same cloth as Al Green, Ike Turner, Curtis Mayfield, and Otis Redding. It appears the veteran is suing the likes of just about every artist that sampled his famous Different Strokes song which was featured on the Ultimate Breaks and Beats compilation. Names like Michael Jackson, Tupac (the estate), KRS 1, NWA and I’m quite sure a list of others are in for a battle.
