ScHoolboy Q is claiming that one of his verses was jacked by a thirsty rapper. The TDE artist claims that Jem Cretes stole the verse that appears on his new “Hustle 101” song.
Complex made sense of the back and forth struggle:
A new song from Delaware rapper Jem Cretes is causing controversy for its inclusion of a ScHoolboy Q verse. ScHoolboy tweeted earlier today that the verse that ended up on “Hustle 101” comes from 2012, and that it was a “stolen session.” “I didn’t do a song wit dat niggaH!!!!” he said. He went on to say that he and his Black Hippy crew would no longer do any interviews with websites that posted the song despite knowing the verse was old.
Jem Cretes has since responded to ScHoolboy’s tweets, saying that there was “no theft” involved in using the verse. He further accused ScHoolboy of owing another person money in relation to this verse and another unspecified business transaction.
However, it’s looking like the other person Jem Cretes refers to, Street Goddess, didn’t get her permission to use the song.
“FYI the song from @jemcretes FT @ScHoolBoyQ was from 2010 and was given 2 me not you cretes it had 211&Menace originally called traphouse,” she tweeted yesterday (March 22).
Couldn’t a cease & desist avoided all this drama, though? Also, it seems like Jem Crete ain’t eating (too easy, just saying).
