Earlier today, Kenoe spoke with Hip-Hop Wired about saying Just Blaze allegedly beat jacked him for Fabolous' latest record, "So NY." "Just Blaze [is] supposed to be a big-time producer but he is not creative enough to make a whole new beat on his own," Kenoe told us earlier today. Just Blaze wasted no time after the story went to press to offer a rebuttal to the "Beez In Da Trap" producer's claims.
Just Blaze sent Hip-Hop Wired the following statement:
"So NY is a great record, but musically it's in the same vein of many rock oriented records I've done. See PSA, Breathe, U don't know, Safe 2 Say, C'mon Baby, The Invitation, The Scientist, Session One, the Fab and Game record that leaked a few years ago, an unreleased Blueprint 3 record that I wish I could play you guys lol.. I can go on.. Truth is, the reason they initially called me about the record is because they thought I did original beat in the first place because of that exact reason. It contained elements that many people identify with me. Not that I'm the only one to have ever done that sound, but many in the culture do identify it with me and its become one of my signatures over the years."As for the drum pattern, see The Bridge is Over, I'm a hustler, Microphone Fiend's ending breakdown, MOP's Put it in the Air, the classic breakbeat "Action".. Which birthed Sucker MC's. I can also go on there too if I actually thought about it a bit more"While the record isn't a dis to Wayne in any way, I understand Kenoe's reasoning as to why he declined for his track to be used due to their relationship and the fact that people do speculate on the sidelines. It's unfortunate that he feels this way, but I do wish him continued success in the future regardless. All love."
