Tekashi 6ix9ine is being accused by Kenyan producer Magix Enga of stealing entire intro of "Gooba".
The producer claims that somebody from Tekashi's team called him to have a copyright claim taken down.
"Some guys called me and they were like, 'You took the song down and we want to pay you and you put the song back as quick as possible ’cause he's Tekashi,' said the producer. "And I was like, 'OK. So, how much do you offer?' And the guys, they say they want to offer 100 Gs, which is $100,000 Kenyan money. And I was like...I was 50/50 about that, but I decided to forgive the guy and take the money, but the next day I was like, hm...I need the credit. So, yesterday, I refunded the money."
100,000 Kenyan shilling equals just over $900 in America, but 6ix9ine's team claim that the uncredited beatmaker was never paid.
"We investigated this claim and found that it was fraudulent," they said. "No monetary settlement was offered by anyone in our camp."
