Last week, producer Young Chop had some harsh words to say about Kanye West’s remix of Chief Keef’s “I Don’t Like,” the original of which he helmed the beat. Chop said that he wasn’t given approval over the final version of the song and wasn’t pleased with the changes that were made without his consent.
During an interview with Hot 97’s Cipha Sounds and Rosenberg show, G.O.O.D. Music’s Big Sean, who is featured on the remix, said that it was all a misunderstanding but that Chop was entitled to feel a ways about the new version of the cut.
“I just think it was a misunderstanding. You know how it goes. It’s all about communication sometimes. I think it was just a lack of communication between the two,” he said. “But it was a remix. I don’t know how official they were taking it, I don’t known if it was going on iTunes. It was just something that we were doing.”
Sean, who says he knows Chop personally, explained that he didn’t think it should have been that big of a deal, but that he has a right to be upset about whatever he chooses.
“I can’t say he wrong, I can’t say he right. It’s all opinionated. It’s not about what’s right or wrong or what’s ethical. He could speak his mind, he got that choice himself. I didn’t personally think he should have made that big of a deal. I think it could have been handled inside, but if that’s what he wants to do, that’s what he wants to do. I can’t blame him.”
