In the heat of Cruel Summer, which dropped six days ago, Roscoe Dash wants a fragment of that spotlight. A few hours ago, the rapper took to twitter to voice his frustrations with not being credited for his work on the album. “Everybody go get the G.O.O.D album and listen to #1 then watch@kanyewest [interview] interview… & tell me y I’m not on the credits,” he tweeted. The rapper-producer then proceeded to rant off “the shit that goes on” in the music industry, including ( and allegedly) not receiving credit for writing Wale’s “Lotus Flower Bomb.”
Do you feel the ATL rapper got duped?
UPDATE: Roscoe adds more clarification via Twitter
@RoscoeDash: “And as far as @KanyeWest “To The World” if u listen close my adlibs are STILL in the song”
“However the record went #1 & I wasnt credited”
“After getting off the phone with @wale I feel like I need to clarify I WROTE THE HOOK for “lotus flowerbomb” not his verses”
UPDATE2: Miguel has responded in an exclusive interview with COMPLEX
As far as I know, Wale and another artist that I recently met penned the original ‘Lotus Flower Bomb’ chorus and I came in and added the second half or the end part…I’m not going to explain myself, this is retarded. I don’t know anything about Roscoe Dash. At the end of the day, I know my involvement in the song and as far as I know, Wale and I, and this other guy, wrote the chorus. The other guy was an alternative artist.
UPDATE3: Roscoe Dash responds to both Miguel and Meek Mill, and tweets photos of the reference tracks on his iTunes.
