French Montana’s hit booty anthem, “Pop That” samples Uncle Luke and 2 Live Crew’s “I Wanna Rock” – and Uncle Luke is looking to get his due contribution (read: guap) for the track.
Gasp! Diddy not paying an artist for his unauthorized sample? It’s like it’s 1997 all over again.
While on the red carpet at the BET Hip-Hop Awards, our favorite columnist for the Miami New Times made it clear that he was looking to talk with Diddy backstage about his payment.
“When I heard the song, I said, ‘Oh this is a hit,’ and the next thing I said is, ‘Where’s my check,” explained Luke.
“Ain’t nobody told me about my check yet. I have not gotten the check yet, so I’m looking for the check. I’m gonna talk to Diddy in the back about it.”
Do you think Diddy’s drafted that check or do I smell an impeding lawsuit?
