The music apparently got into the wrong hands, forcing Quan to get his lawyer involved. Although he asserts to disliking the controversial line, it’s unclear why he went forward with the recording.

"'I Made It' was never intended to be released," he said. "The song was not lyrically what I wanted to say and was not completed. Without my knowledge, there was a studio leak of the recording. I apologize that it’s out; and I have asked my lawyer to pursue a cease and desist on the song immediately.”

Quan added, “To be clear, I would never condone rape."
