Lil Fame Releases OFFICIAL Statement Regarding Beat Jacking Allegations

Lil Fame

Since we initially broke the news of the alleged “beat jacking” accusations towards Lil Fame (of M.O.P.) by Philly producer Kil, I have been working day and night to get an official response from Fame himself. A few hours ago, I was contact by Dan Green (manager of Termanology and owner of ClockWork Music) stating that Lil Fame wanted to officially address this issue. Dan and I have had a working relationship for about a year, so I trust his word as a mediator to this situation.

Hit the jump for Lil Fame’s official statement and my conclusion to this matter…

From Lil Fame:

Its true I didn’t do the beat “Rude Bastards” as Kil said….I heard it, it was hot and I rhymed on it…I’d never steal a beat, that’s not me…and the quote on the net is not from me I’m looking into who made that statement as me

Laze (M.O.P’s manager) was handling the credits, I gave him the info for who did the beat.

I just saw the finished artwork and my 1st comment was, “I didn’t do that beat why does it say I did”? (Ref. To “rude bastard”)

-Lil Fame aka Fizzy Womack of M.O.P.

As Lil Fame states, the mix up seems to be with the handling of the credits by M.O.P’s manager, thus releasing Fame from any responsibility.

To wrap things up, let’s think about a few questions:

  • Lil Fame admits to rhyming over the beat. Does his statement make up for the fact that Kil was not credited?
  • Does the above statement change your view of the situation and of Lil Fame?
  • Does it change your opinion on how we reported the allegations?
  • If you feel we were in the wrong, how could we have changed our approach?

In the coming days, we will present to you an article on how producers can take steps to avoid a similar situation and what legal recourse they have if it does happen to them. Stay tuned!
