Fiasco claimed that he (actually, his reps) reached out to the legendary producer for his blessings prior to releasing the track, which samples the classic “T.R.O.Y. (They Reminisce Over You).” “That was a little unexpected seeing as we already reached out to him,” said Lupe. Seems like this controversy is just getting started.
