"The Devil is a Lie" might not be as truthful as fans thought. Atlanta-based producer Major Seven claims fellow beat builder K.E. On the Track jacked the music for Rick Ross' new joint and played it off as his own.
Seven called out K.E. on Twitter Wednesday (Dec. 19). "Rick Ross feat. Jayz Devil is a Lie prod. by Me stolen by @_keonthetrack … this guy is a straight theif!!!!" he wrote.
K.E. responded with a Jay Z quote, "We dont believe you, you need more people."
Ironically, K.E. even recorded himself allegedly constructing the instrumental for the Jay Z-assisted joint, which makes the situation even worse according to Seven. "if @_keonthetrack has any type of morals, he should feel like crap knowing he stole my beat! and that he even tried to make a beat video."
The producer kept with his claims, while K.E. — a self-proclaimed "beat mechanic" — never retorted, but from the looks of it, the discrepancy still isn't settled. This morning Seven RT'd and responded to tweets of support including one from 16-year-old producer Ebony "Wondagurl" Oshunrinde, who made Jay Z's "Crown" beat off Magna Carta Holy Grail. "@MajorSeven sorry to hear that," she wrote. "Dope beat tho."
