Cruel Summer may be on constant rotation on our iPods as we analyze how the compilation album measures against Kanye West‘s previous projects, but Atlanta rapper Roscoe Dash is probably using the album as a coaster. See, Roscoe Dash is upset about not being in the credits of Ye’s video about the making of the album. Instead of remaining silent he took to Twitter to air out Yeezy for the omission in the credits for “To The World,” which he says his ad libs can be heard on. “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 tweeted. “Can’t do favors for n—– bcuz no matter how humble and generous u r to ppl n—– will take everything u have… Even n—- u look up to.” This man is clearly fearless because doesn’t he know Ye will slay him in a song?
Cruel Summer’s opening track isn’t the only song he assisted with without acknowledgement. He claims he wrote the hook for Wale’s smash hit “Lotus Flower Bomb” way before Wale signed to MMG. And again, he was left off the credits. “Same shyt with @wale lotus flower bomb I wrote that for him b4 he even signed to Ross & it went #1,” he tweeted. To prove his point he tweeted photos of the both songs on his computer prior to the songs being released. Since Miguel sung on “Lotus Flower Bomb” he added his two cents in an interview with Complex magazine.
Messy, messy, messy. You can’t blame the guy for wanting his due credit if he did in fact contribute. But to blast it on Twitter? Twitter is the new press release. Publicists beware.
