TDE member says Jem Cretes jacked his rhyme for "Hustle 101" track from a 2012 recording session.
An old verse on a new song has ScHoolBoy Q upset with a rapper out of Delaware. Jem Cretes recently unveiled "Hustle 101," featuring a two-year-old rhyme from Q which the 27-year-old Cali native claims was stolen from a 2012 studio session.
Once Q caught wind of the alleged thievery he called Cretes out on Twitter. "N----Hz is burnt i didn't do a song wit dat n----H !!!! N----Hz stealing sessions too tHirsty!!" Using my two year old verse f---koutta Here," he wrote Saturday (March 22) morning.
The "Man of the Year" rapper didn't stop there. Q announced that he and the rest of Black Hippy won't be doing interviews with sites that knowingly post the old song. "And to all da websites postin dat knowing it's old I ain't f--kin wit y'all nomo dnt ask for a interview from me r da Homies it's ova for u." He added, "Trust me if I tell BHIPPY NOT TO F--K WIT YALL DEY WONT BRAH."
Cretes hit back at Q's first tweet by throwing out some allegations of his own. First, he denied that he jacked the record, then turned the tables on Q. "Its been in my email for the Hustle 101 project. No theft in me in any way what so ever. That was business between him and jen," he tweeted, referring to an artist by the name of Street Goddess (based on her tweets, Street Goddess is siding with Q).
"@ScHoolBoyQ That was business between u and @STREETGODDESS and you owe her bread at that," Cretes continued. "U laid the verse knowing it was gonna be a feat."
Q didn't respond to the money tweet, but it's safe to say that Cretes might not be as tight with TDE as he was in the past. Before they traded jabs on Twitter, Cretes did work with the West Coast collective. He directed the music video for "Kendrick Lamar" the title track from K. Dot's 2009 EP.
