Whats good ya'll! so i know i am a little late on this, but if you didn't already know, twista has a newer song out entitled "I Can Make You Say". This song is a mid tempo banger that features prince in a sample heard frequently through out the tune. Since the song leaked, many people are quick to say the song is a Chicago collab starring Twista and produced by Kanye West.
BUT it really is a slap Doc Savage sold to Twista (GMG Entertainment)for his upcoming album. Sources have said that since the prince sample could not be cleared, the song has been used on a mixtape to promote the upcoming album.....(Problem. Doc Savage was not notified about this). The contract basically stated that Doc Savage would get 1 pt on the album, production credits, and $1200. Mr. Savage received his money at least six months ago, but was not notified about the mix up with the song not being cleared. As a businessman myself, I would say that is unacceptable and would likely do some things about that but Doc seems to be satisfied with his money, so what can I do. But just so you know who's music it really is that you like. Doc Savage made that beat. We may make a video about this situation soon enough seeing how we have the beat on Fruity Loops and the contract, but i figured i would throw this up for now. Whether Kanye was involved in taking credit or not I don't know but if it were me, I would clear it up quick to avoid getting a bad rep.
