Hip-Hop Rumors: Did Jay-Z Block Some Young UK Rappers?

DID JAY-Z HATE ON SOME YOUNG UK RAPPERS?

I’m so out of the loop, its pathetic. So, there are these dudes named Konan and Krepts and they did a version of “Otis,” by Kanye West and Jigga. These dudes are from the UK and they did a pretty good job with this remix. But all of them have been removed from youtube and I think even vimeo. Sucks! They are all over twitter and pointing the finger at Jay and youtube. It seems they feel that there is some hate towards them for making money off of the ads on youtube. HM…what do you think?

Part of this rumor is even odder. I heard that Jay paid them like 90k just to go away with the remix. Now, that’s strange to me. Interesting!


You can find the video online, if you click here.

    figures … i mean “JIGGA”

  • Not possible due to the fact youtube won’t pay you if you don’t own the music. So they can’t make money off of ads.

      Case closed! Guess he couldn’t find any relevant rumors regarding U.S. rappers that we actually know.

    Why would Jay-Z even care??? They’re not even in his unborn baby’s tax bracket. You really think this n*gga Hov has time to have a vendetta against some random ass n*ggaz rappin’ on the “Otis” beat. Buhahahaha!! Stop it 5.

  • forevercalm

    Their Remix got 4million views in two days thats why thier pissed 

    • scullyson

      Looks like a bunch of clowns if u ask me.

  • people do it, if you have a monetized Youtube account, all ur videos have adverts so people can essentially profit off of whatever they want, other peoples work, which the majority do. If labels hunted down each and every user who was making money off simply posting songs that were not then, they could crop up millions. This is why I think its good that only the artists official accounts can post music videos, as its fair to them. With technology nowadays people argue and think they can do whatever they want, but you cant. If you are an artist, would you allow if you could stop it, strangers around the world to make money off your name and them seeing all of the cheque? I know people who get thousands a month from youtube adverts, its a sneaky way for people to do it. None of you can understand what its like until it happens to you.

  • 4 MILLION HITS IN 2 DAYS?

    I see why Jay & Ye’ would be mad. Them U.K. dudes talk funny as fuk , but I’m feeling their track more than the original , their low budget video too.

    No doubt the original ( Jay / Ye ) is better & Jay & ye’ are better ….much better , but they don’t talk about nothing , IMHO & that is a waste.
    Jay & Ye did their thing , but I’m a hater ( cuz of wasted talent ….making $$$ but still wasted )

  • I would have blocked them too if i was him. Too many people on youtube is using their names and song titles just to get users to listen to their work. No coat tailing  here..
