Lil George released the video for his “Sauce” song in April. The Detroit rapper’s fans have said that Meek Mill appropriated Lil George’s cut for his “I Got The Juice,” which was released June 30.
While his fans have taken issue with the song, Lil George says he has no issue with Meek Mill’s cut and that he was flattered to be compared to the MMG act and his Dreams Worth More Than Money song.
“It’s a cool song,” Lil George says during an exclusive interview with HipHopDX, “and Meek is my favorite artist.
“I made ‘Sauce’ for the younger generation, so they can already relate to the concept,” Lil George continues. “It’s another word for ‘swag’, and everybody has swag. I think my fans know that it’s just fun, and that’s why they have been so supportive.”
Due in part to the popularity of “Sauce,” Lil George signed a deal with Brooklyn Knights Entertainment/Sony Music in partnership with hometown label BMB Entertainment.
The 17-year-old rapper says that Sony provided him with the best opportunity to further his career.
“I was fortunate enough to have a couple of really good offers on the table, but Sony came with a plan for the ‘Sauce’ single and my upcoming mixtape that made the most sense for us,” he says. “So far BMB Entertainment and my team have been doing this all ourselves, so to know that I could have a company like Sony behind me means a lot.”
Yesterday (September 14), DJ Envy premiered the “Sauce remix” with French Montana.
Lil George’s “Sauce,” its remix and Meek Mill’s “I Got The Juice” are as follows:
