During an interview with XXLMag.com, Chop said that he felt “disrespected” by the remixed version because they modified the beat and changed the feel of the song without giving them approval.
“I just felt disrespected ’cause I didn’t even hear the song before it dropped, and I kept telling them that I wanna hear the song,” he said. “I ain’t know the song was changed over like that. Keef explained in another interview [that] we didn’t hear the song. And then I’m hearing the song and there’s different sounds in the beat, it don’t even sound like the real beat. It sounded like a rock star beat, and that’s not how I do it. That’s not my sound. [Kanye] should have called me and asked me, ‘Ayo Chop, can I do this? Can I do that?’ But no. I didn’t hear nothing from him. I never talked to him.”
He continued by saying that he spoke with Kanye West’s associates and would now rather that the remix be erased entirely. Chop says that he was in the studio with Big Sean when he laid his vocals, and that the beat hadn’t been changed then. For Chop, the beef stems from the fact that it was flipped.
“He didn’t sit at the table and make that beat,” Chop said of Kanye. “He just coulda asked me. He changed what I put my time into. I made it the way how I made it.”
