Mr Vegas clearly states he doesn’t appreciate Drizzy turning Beenie Man into what he labels as an “intro artist” or “hype man” after sampling The King of Dancehall’s “Tear Off Mi Garment” on “Controlla” and for taking Popcaan off the same track much to the dismay of fans. Drake also sampled Popcaan’s “Luh Yuh Bad” on “Too Good” which features the biggest Bajan singer you know, Rihanna.
“Why did Drake link Beenie Man to on sing back that record if that’s the one he wanted? Or why let Beenie Man do something new?” Mr. Vegas asks during his Facebook Live broadcast on Monday (May 16). “So then I’m listening to the record further and at the end of the record when the record done, you can hear the record fin, Beenie Man doing the outro. So I’m like, Drake is rampaning my artists. You using my artists as intro men.”
Mr. Vegas admits during his interview with Ebro that he wishes Drake would have just visibly credited who was featured on the song, even though some of the reggae artists are named in the credits for VIEWS.
