Statik told Termanology he could take the beat after the lack of credit. Termanology pointed out this is just how the industry works, especially when you have so many hands contributing to a project.
“He like, ‘Alright fuck it, you can have that beat now ’cause they didn’t give me my credit,'” Termanology recalled. “So we ended up using the beat, the same beat, on our shit. The drums. … I’m not coming up here to shit on Kanye. It’s just the industry’s like that, right? You got 10 cats working on a beat. Sometimes, people forget who did what.”
He continued, “If I had to guess and I’m just being a good person, I would say that it was just like, the credit got forgotten. I don’t think he was like, ‘Fuck Statik’ or anything, you know what I’m saying? I think it was just 100 dudes in there.”
