Here goes this shit again! Its only been a few weeks since the Nas ghostwriting accusations died down and now Roscoe Dash is bringing more drama! What better place to do it than on Twitter!!
In a series of tweets, the Atlanta, cougar smashing, rapper lashed out at Kanye West and Wale, alleging he helped write recent songs for them but didn’t receive any credit.
Roscoe started his rant by claiming helped write Kanye’s “To The World”, the opener to the G.O.O.D. Music compilation album, Cruel Summer, feat. baby music maker, R.Kelly. “Everybody go get the G.O.O.D album and listen to #1 then watch @kanyewest interview … & tell me y I’m not on the credits,” he wrote this morning, linking to the Kanye West interview posted to WorldStarHipHop.
In the interview, Kanye discusses the collaborative process behind Cruel Summer. “One track might have 30 people’s opinions on it,” he says. “It’s not just about a tracklist and a name, it’s about the communal style of work.” Yeezy goes on to shout out the many artists that appear on the album, but he doesn’t mention Dash.
Roscoe also pointed to Wale and Miguel’s smash duet “Lotus Flower Bomb” as another example of a song he penned but didn’t receive credit for. “Same s–t with @Wale lotus flower bomb,” he wrote. “I wrote that for him b4 he even signed to Ross & it went #1…but nobody would kno that cuz I’m not in the credits.”
“Can’t do favors for n—as bcuz no matter how humble and generous u r to ppl n—as will take everything u have,” Roscoe continued. “Even n—as u look up to. The most talented ppl get the least credit for everything and the crazy part is they put in the MOST work. But EVERYTHING must eventually come to the light…I’m only speaking on this publicly bcuz there are so many ppl who wanna be apart of the industry but dnt [sic] kno half of the s–t that goes on.”
Later on, Roscoe tweeted that he’d talked to Wale about the matter and specified that he didn’t write Wale’s parts on “Lotus Flower Bomb.” “After getting off the phone with @wale I feel like I need to clarify I WROTE THE HOOK for lotus flowerbomb’ not his verses,” he wrote.
He didn’t have a similar disclaimer for Kanye’s “To the World,” however. “If u listen close, my adlibs are STILL in the song,” Roscoe claimed.
Kanye and Wale have yet to make a “public’ response, but I am interested in hearing what Yeezy will have to say!
