Young Chop is upset with industry folks exploiting his hometown and its artists. Chop, who is at the Atlanta Music Festival & Conference, took to IG to express himself on the matter in a series of posts. He captioned his rant, “The Truth.”
Chop told followers there was a “a lot of f**k s**t going on.” Chop said there was an agenda against him because people were “putting lies” on him.
Chop said he’s not bothered because G-d got him.
“This a message to all the Chicago artists, producers and everything,” he said. “Don’t go against me. I’m here to help you motherf*****s. It’s them old n****s geeking yall heads up. Then these n****s be tricking yall minds signing yall to these $10,000 deals cause yall ain’t got no money.”
Chop even called out Kanye West whom he feels is also exploiting Chicago artists.
“And the n***a Kanye don’t make it no better,” Chop continued. “He right along with the s**ts… use you, try to soak up everything n****s know, get you to write songs for him. And then don’t call you after that. For instance, like ‘Don’t Like’ and my boy Vic Mensa, they gone make it seem like he put them on. And he really f*****g didn’t. N****s started from the bottom.”
Young Chop had prior issues with Kanye for remixing him and Chief Keef’s “I Don’t Like” without permission,
“How a ni**a going take my beat #u kids don’t no shit about this music shit smfh #i don’t like hahahahahahahahaha” he wrote on Twitter in 2013 before quickly deleting it.
In an interview with Hood Supa Star, Young Chop expressed his displeasure with Kanye, saying, “I’m mad as f*ck for the simple fact they did not ask me to change up sh*t in my beat. They don’t have no files to none of my sh*t, so how the f*ck did they add a melody over the instrumental. These motherf*ckas is playing me and I don’t give two f*cks. I will sue the sh*t out of Kanye West. He need to call my phone right now before I snap.”
In an interview with HipHop DX, Young Chop said he doesn’t care about Kanye West’s celebrity status.
“I don’t care! I’m building my own brand. Why would I go off his brand? I didn’t ask him to get on no songs, none of that,” he said. “He wanted to get on it. So people need to fall back and mind they business. Like the critics, and everybody that’s hatin’—the supporters of Kanye West, basically.”
