Maryland-based rapper Logic has posted a new tweet on his verified Twitter page and complains that Def Jam won’t pay Lil Wayne for the feature after Kanye West’s controversial tweets.
It seems Kanye West is not the only artist who wants to raise his complaints with his own label. Although Kanye West was denied by Twitter for sharing personal information of a Forbes journalist, he received support from his fellow artists regarding his contract complaints against Universal Music Group and Sony Music. And now Logic shared a tweet saying that he also cosigns West’s concerns about label records.
“90% of the record contracts on the planet are still on a royalty. A standard record deal is a trap to NEVER have you recoup, and there’s all these hidden costs like the “distribution fees” many labels put in their contracts to make even more money off our work without even trying.”
Logic retweeted Ye’s statement and added that he had plans to release a remix to ‘Perfect,’ a track on his final album No Pressure. But his label record, Def Jam, didn’t intend to pay Lil Wayne for the feature. Def Jam’s parent company is Universal Music Group.
Here’s what Logic stated:
“I feel you, Def Jam ain’t trying a pay Lil Wayne his fee, so I guess the perfect remix ain’t coming out… Owe a few of my folks they money honestly.”
