It Was All Good Just A Week Ago

Ski Beatz, who produced “Dead Presidents” and a bunch of other Jay-Z shit over the years, may be the victim of a flagrant beat jack on Jay’s new opus American Gangster.

What do you think, did Jermaine and No ID get Ski for his track or what?

Upon hearing the track, Ski had the following to say:

“I did the beat first. That beat got played for so many people. I sent it out. [They] could have bit. But that doesn’t necessarily mean [he bit] when you fucking with samples; [they] could have just found the same one. I’ll let the people decide. I got my new artist Pittsburgh Slim signed over at Def Jam, [so] how ironic.”
