Friday, Dec 20, 2013 12:15PM
Hours after the release of Rick Ross and Jay Z's hard-hitting "Devil Is A Lie" anthem, producer Major Seven has stepped forward to call out the song's creator, K.E. On The Track.
According to Seven, he is actually the person responsible for 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. has already jumped onto Twitter to defend his image and slam 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)
Along with working with Ricky Rozay and Jay, K.E. has reportedly clocked in studio time with artists like Young Money's Nicki Minaj.
Rick Ross releases his new single "The Devil Is a Lie" featuring Jay Z. The song is from Rozay's upcoming album Mastermind. The two rappers have a rich history of collaborations, starting with the remix of Ross' first major single "Hustlin'" in 2006. They've since worked together on "Maybach Music," "Free Mason," Kanye West's "Monster," "3 Kings," and most recently "F*ckWithMeYouKnowIGotIt" off of Hov's Magna Carta Holy Grail. The song is produced by K.E. On The Track, who also did "You The Boss" with Nicki Minaj in 2011. (Complex)
