Roscoe Dash stirred up controversy last week when he claimed that he was not properly credited for work he did on Wale’s “Lotus Flower Bomb” and G.O.O.D. Music’s “To the World,” from Cruel Summer, which features Kanye West and R. Kelly.
In an interview with MTV News, Dash elaborated on the claims. “I just want people to understand what people have to go through in the industry, what we have to deal with on a day-to-day basis,” he said of his Twitter rant. “No matter who you are, no matter what you’ve done in the past, it’s a dirty game.”
Dash revealed that he felt he had been taken advantage of. “People like myself who are generous, we like to go out and participate in other people’s stuff. We like to keep our hands in a lot of different things rather than just worry about one specific thing, which would be ourselves,” he continued. “Me particularly, just because of the past stuff I’ve been going through with my personal career, [I thought] maybe I don’t have to worry about this right now. Fuck talking about the album: Let’s go and do something else over here and get my mind off of this for minute so when I come back I have a clear head [and know] what I wanna do. [But] we get walked on a lot, and I just want people to know that it happens. Plain and simple.”
Neither Wale nor Kanye have responded to the accusations.
