News: Major Seven Stands Behind Rick Ross Beat-Jacking Accusation: "People In The Industry Will Know"
Saturday, Dec 21, 2013 6:24PM
Producer Major Seven has come forward to address the commotion he sparked this week after accusing fellow hitmaker K.E. On The Track of jacking Rick Ross' new "The Devil Is A Lie" record.
According to Seven, K.E. took key elements of his original beat and flipped it for Ricky Rozay's newest Mastermind record.
"The actual beat that I submitted actually sounds better as far as quality wise because he tried to replay the drums, but they aren't the same quality as the one that I used. And [he] tried to change the 808s to a bass. The original one is actually better. You know, I guess it's going to work itself out. It's going to be a big look for me, for my first placement to be Jay Z and Rick Ross? The track I did before that was on T-Pain's last mixtape, "Let You Go." I produced that. I just see this as the start of my career." (XXL Mag)
K.E. also promised to bring justice to the situation by releasing visual proof.
"All I am going to do is make a beat video with me showing every single track that's in the beat. And it's going to be a real beat video. I really don't have to say anything. I mean, the people in the industry will know. Big people already know. I made so many big connections just between today and yesterday." (XXL Mag)
A few days ago, Seven claimed he was actually the person responsible for originally crafting Ricky Rozay's record.
"Rick Ross feat. Jayz Devil is a Lie prod. by Me stolen by @_keonthetrack http://www.worldstarhiphop.com/videos/video.php?v=wshhF6JbhrAt45uKuM5h ... this guy is a straight theif!!!!," Seven tweeted December 19. (Major Seven's Twitter)
K.E. almost immediately jumped onto Twitter to defend his image and slammed the accusations.
"" We dont believe you , you need more people " hov.lol," K.E. tweeted December 19. (K.E. On The Track's Twitter)
The track officially premiered online Thursday (December 19) afternoon.
Bey and Hov are a true power couple -- just a few days after Beyonce dropped her new record in the dead of night, Jay Z and Rick Ross are out with a new K.E.-produced single "The Devil Is A Lie," off Ross' upcoming LP, Mastermind. After teasing the hell out of the collab on Twitter Thursday (December 19), Rozay dropped the song via SoundCloud this afternoon, along with a tweet teasing Mastermind reading: "Mastermind on the way." The track is a true tour de force: frenzied, studded with horns and driving drum machines, with both Barneys and Kendrick Lamar's "Control" verse getting shoutouts. (MTV)
