Kanye West has been collaborating with artists from his hometown of Chicago for years now, including young up-and-comers like Chief Keef and Vic Mensa. While most new artists would be happy to work with the likes of Ye, Young Chop, who produced the original version of Keef’s hit single “I Don’t Like,” has expressed otherwise. In 2012, Chop was upset that Kanye altered his beat for the remix without asking, but many thought that was water under the bridge since the pair worked together on Pusha T’s My Name Is My Name.
Chop took to his Instagram yesterday to warn Chicago rappers not to be used by Kanye and other industry veterans. He went on to say:
“The n*gga Kanye don’t make it no better. He right along with the sh*ts. Use you, try to soak up everything n*ggas know, get you to write songs for him, and then don’t call you after that. F*ck him! Say for instance, like, ‘Don’t Like,’ and my boy Vic Mensa. He gon’ make it seem like he put them on. And he really f*cking didn’t. N*ggas started from the bottom.”
