Bow Wow Says He Had Rick Ross' "Stay Schemin'" Beat First

Bow Wow explains how he had the "Stay Schemin'" beat first and says Jahlil is a favorite producer of his.

Bow Wow recently spoke with Tim Westwood regarding his favorite producer and had the chance to explain the story behind the "Stay Schemin'" beat. While "Stay Schemin'" is a Rick Ross track, Bow says he had the instrumental before the MMG boss. 

"Jahlil [Beats], hands down right now," he said when asked about "the hottest producers right now." This also gave him the chance to explain the story of how "Stay Schemin'" became a Ross beat. 

"[Jahlil's] little brother, The Beat Bully, is the dude who did 'Schemin',' which is crazy because if you look on the blog on YouTube, I had the 'Schemin'' beat first. A lot of people don't know that. Yeah, me and Meek [Mill] was working on it in the studio. I just used the beat just for the webisode series, just to play while me and Meek was in the studio."

After using it for the webisode, The Beat Bully's instrumental landed with Ross, which Bow Wow was surprised about.

"I don't know how it reached back to Ross and them but as soon as I heard it, I just went like this [putting hands on his head]. I called him. I said, 'Yo, you gave that beat to Ross?' He was like, 'I didn't know if you was gonna use it. I thought you just used it for this...' It happens." 

The video of the interview can be seen below.

    Me and Meek Mill was workin on it in the studio, and then I hear Ross has it and I call Jahlil and i'm like whaaaaaat????

    He passed on it because he didn't know what to do with it, if he was on it that song would've been forgotten or un heard of. It's easy to say what you could've been yours when its hot. You know how many beats have been passed on...

    WAHHHHHHHHHHH-bow wow dog no one cares

  • drew

    Thats why in the music industry u gotta work fast and be consistent. Producers give beats out to multiple artist so you gotta be on top of your shit. This nigga bow wow is probably focusing more on Vanessa Simmons instead of his career.

    • Mr Exlax

      Man you're 100% correct. Artists forget that up and coming producers are starving artists as well. Like who can afford to just leave a good beat to just one person.

  • ummmmmmmm

    at the end of the day, no one paid for it lol. its a mixtape record. we'll probably hear it again.

    Ok Bow Wow. Tell Rozay to his face that you want your silly beat back. That's what I thought. Now go pay your taxes.

    • yo

      word. what is with these muhfuggas and not paying taxes...even robin thick is skippin out on payin uncle sam. always tlkin bout how the world is so messed up...its cuz of idiots like you (bow wow) who dont want to redistribute some of that money back into the projects via taxes. go spend it on 20G earings



  • Reguardless tho

    reguardless to who think bow wow is hot or wack that producer shouldnt even be giving out other beats to niggas if he knew the artist he gave it to first would of used it he should called or comfirm with bow wow still... that why i dont be liking these producer niggas for real


      Cmon dude. Do you know how producers eat. In the production game whoever uses it first gets the beat. If you gave the beat to two hot emcee's and one finishes it in a week and the other takes 6-7 months then the late emcee gotta fall back. That's how it works homie.

    who cares?you had let it & Meek can still do the track you were guna do it just wont be looked at as original.AND FOR FUCK SAKE THAT BEAT ISNT EVEN THAT GOOD!!!!WHY ARE PEOPLE SO OBSESSED WITH IT?!?!?!?!?

  • c4 triple plat

    does he want a cookie?

  • Mr Flamboyant

    STFU bow wow. Seriously. Go somewhere and let YESSIR sick your duck.

  • poetic assasin

    I hate when artists say that... producers have to shop the beats around so they can get paid... like when Pusha said Kanye gave him the Niggas in Paris beat and he didn't like it... Bow Wow wouldnt have done anything on this except say the usual "i'm smoking on this - niggas stay hating - and ur girl does this" same shit every song...

  • Vingo

    Thank god Bow wow didn't have the chance to use that banging beat!
