(AllHipHop News) Drake was caught up in a rumor this week that he stole the track for “6 God” from Two-9 member Jace. The Atlanta rapper posted a video on his Twitter timeline which included Jace saying he recorded a verse over the same beat last summer.
He also posted tweets that read “shots shots” and “real 6ix God boy.” Those messages left the impression that Drake created “6 God” from a track that belonged to Jace.
AllHipHop.com spoke with “6 God” co-producer Syk Sense about the issue over his beat. Syk made it clear that Drake had access to the track months before Jace recorded over it.
“I don’t know why Jace put it on Twitter like that, because I was in the studio the night he did it and we had a conversation. I said, ‘Don’t put it out there that Drake stole it, because he didn’t,'” says Syk. “Drake had that beat first.”
Once Syk found out that Drake and his team had officially picked up the track, he relayed that to Jace. He even played Drake’s version of the song for Jace to hear.
“Minutes from when I heard the news, I drove up to the studio and played the verse,” explains Syk. “[I said,] ‘This is what’s going on right now.’ And everybody was happy for me. We were all happy.”
According to Syk, Drake never heard Jace rhyming over what became the beat for “6 God.” He also added Jace’s version was never completed. Apparently, Jace only recorded a single verse over the track.
“I told him he should release the record once he finishes it, because it’s pretty cool. But don’t make it seem like Drake stole that from you,” says Syk.
Syk Sense has had a working relationship with Jace. The Nashville native/Atlanta resident also contributed to Drake’s “Know Yourself,” Travi$ Scott’s “Backyard,” and DJ Drama’s “Right Back” featuring Jeezy, Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan.
