Roscoe Dash Says Kanye West Didn’t Give Him Credit on “Cruel Summer” Tracklisting


(AllHipHop News) Atlanta rapper and songwriter Roscoe Dash recently took to Twitter to voice his displeasure with not being named in the credits on Kanye West’s newly released G.O.O.D. music compilation, Cruel Summer.

Roscoe voiced his opinion on the social media site, proclaiming that he deserved credit for the track “To the World”, and that he also wrote the hook to Wale and Miguel’s #1 hit song, “Lotus Flower Bomb”.

In the rant on Twitter, Roscoe referenced an interview that Kanye West released on YouTube.

“Everybody go get the G.O.O.D album and listen to #1 then watch @kanyewest interview … & tell me y I’m not on the credits,” Roscoe tweeted.

After several hours of comments from fans, and after setting the blog world on fire with his incendiary statements, Roscoe decided to clarify that he solely wrote the hook on the Wale song, and not the whole song itself.

“After getting off the phone with @wale I feel like I need to clarify I WROTE THE HOOK for “lotus flowerbomb” not his verses,” Roscoe clarified.

West has yet to comment on the situation. See Roscoe’s Twitter timeline below:

    im not really a roscoe fan but hes tellin the truthe and it sucks that this happens in the industry, especially if its coming from one of my favorite mc’s. I thought kanye was well beyond that point.

  • Lyve Wire

    i ve seen/heard this happen before… i’m not surprised at all, especially on a kanye project. with all of the people he uses through out this process, from main features, back ground features and other producers, he (or whoever it is to blame) maybe just over looked him. regardless, i’d be mad too. seems like the ones who get the credit for being geniuses are the ones who need 20-25 to get 1 song done… funny how that works (ahem, kanye)..

  • OaklandOxymoron

    Welp, have ya paperwork right and this won’t happen. Way too many examples of people stealing credit for songs/beats that someone else created. In the industry it’s not yours if the paperwork doesn’t say so

  • Kanye shitted on D Dot when he snitched about ghost producing for him and karma has come back to Kanye it appears. Muahahahahaha Ruff Ruff!

    He didn’t say he didn’t get paid. He just said they didn’t credit him. They could have pulled a “oops, we already sent in the credit info. Our bad”. If it’s anything other than that, he’ll sue but then he’ll be blackballed LOL.

  • nomikal

    that female on the end of the track didn’t get credit either, who is she.

  • Ajaxnhtown

    If you read close he says that is why you don’t do favors for niggaz……this is the music industry nothing should be done for free. you think kanye doing favors for other artists. Like juicy say whenever a nigga ask you to do something holla out cash , cash ,cash ,cash. and get your dba right. its funny how so many of these artists can rap but don’t have dbas and copyrights of their own music.

    Stop acting like a bitch. Handle your business professionally and go through lawyers not a social networking site. You wanted to be credited for your profession and work but the way you went about it wasn’t professional. Nigga remind me of my little cousin talking shit on facebook bout his mom because she made him go to bed early. GTFOH with that shit. You are right though, if you did do work, you should be acknowledged.

    I dont listen to rappers/singers who cry about getting credit for writing songs you know why? cuz right or wrong its your soul responsibility to make sure all your credit is due. Not them. To be upset I get. To want to get your credit I get. But to go cry on twitter or in interviews about it I think that’s some nut ass shit. That’s on you bruh not Kanye and Wale if it’s true that you did that. Just like Gillie the Kid. What was the point in all that when at the end of the day you have no proof for your claim. Thats why you demand that your credit be given after you do whateva it is you claim you did

  • Lamonte Johnson

    and correction you wanted to be a part of the industry. you in it. and YOU dont know whats going on. thats on u bruh
