Young Chop vs. Kanye West

Most up-and-coming producers would give their left ear to be remixed by Kanye — but not Young Chop. The rookie beatmaker blasted fellow Chi native Kanye West earlier this year for repurposing his beat for Chief Keef's anthemic "I Don't Like."I just felt disrespected ’cause I didn’t even hear the song before it dropped, and I kept telling them that I wanna hear the song," Chop said of the remix. "I ain’t know the song was changed over like that....That’s not my sound." Kanye never responded directly, but his G.O.O.D. Music signee Pusha T seemed to be talking about Chop when he rapped, "You can keep your beats, n---a / We'd much rather share your b---h, n---a," on "Exodus 23:1" earlier this year.
