Meek Mill got a hit with the DJ Mustard-produced “Whatever You Need” record on his “Wins and Losses” album. The record – which features vocals from Chris Brown and Ty Dolla $ign – contains a sample from Tony Toni Tone’s “Whatever You Want.”
Meek’s record appears to have gotten a thumbs up in the culture.
But not everyone is pleased.
North Carolina artist DJ Luke Nasty alslo sampled “Whatever You Want” in his song “OTW,” released on May 12, 2016. The song has earned RIAA Gold certification.
Luke Nasty took to Twitter to call out the Philly emcee, writing, [email protected] you corny as hell for that s**t.”
He even had some words for Ty Dolla $ign.
“And @tydollasign wack as f**k too …I asked that n***a on the otw remix and he do this s**t.”
This may be considered a d**k move, but it’s technically not DJ Luke’s song considering it’s a Tony Toni Tone sample.
A similar incident occurred after Bryson Tiller sampled K.P. & Envyi’s “Shorty Swing My Way” on song “Exchange.” J. Cole used the sample on his “Deja Vu” song.
