    Of course he has a legit qualm. If this beat was owned by a record studio nobody would think twice about this, I don’t know why it’s such a big deal that it’s Finesse. You can’t just tweet “much respect” while making songs over someone’s completely unchanged beats and expect the problems to go away, and Mac’s people should have known better. It’s not even like Mac Miller sampled or mixed the beat – it’s the whole thing, unchanged.
