West Coast rapper ScHoolboy Q has issued a strong warning to websites over the reported unauthorized release of a new track by hip-hop artist Jem Cretes.

Jem Cretes has already come forward to speak out on the dicey comments.
“Treat me like the bad person and the reality is i didn’t steal,didn’t fraud, didn’t lie, didn’t switch up what it is or was… #TrueStory,” he tweeted March 22.
“I understand there’s politics involved and i was the middle man on whatever the situation was. All i did was follow thru with the record”
“My pockets ain’t thirsty, i eat good and have never cried… We ain’t feeling to switch up the reality. Just spoke to kendrick two weeks ago” (Jem Cretes’ Twitter)
Reports claim Cretes has worked with ScHoolboy’s Top Dawg Entertainment label in the past.
Delaware rapper Jem Cretes releasing a new song titled ‘Hustle 101’ has irked Q because according to the TDE rapper, it features an old verse of his which he never authorized to be released. Jem Cretes is no stranger to the TDE camp. Back in the day, he directed music videos for Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul and more. Although HHNM didn’t post the song but really Q? You’re going to boycott the websites over this? How are the outlets supposed to know when the song released, whether it’s an authorized verse or not? (HHNM)
Earlier this month, Q’s new Oxymoron managed to sell over 130,000 copies in week one.
As forecast, ScHoolboy Q’s major-label debut, “Oxymoron,” bows at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, selling 139,000 copies in the week ending March 2, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Signed to Top Dawg Entertainment, the new album is ScHoolboy Q’s first in a joint-venture deal with Interscope Records. It’s also the first No. 1 for Top Dawg, which previously reached No. 2 with Kendrick Lamar‘s “good kid, m.A.A.D city” in 2012. (Billboard)
