K.E. On The Track Accused Of Stealing “The Devil Is A Lie” Beat

When Rick Ross dropped “Devil Is A Lie” yesterday the internet went crazy reaping in an overwhelming amount of acclamation for the track. However in the past 24 hours, the track has been placed in another light now with the listed producer, KE On The Track being accused of stealing the beat.

Following the release of the record, rising producer Major Seven didn’t hesitate to call out famed producer KE On The Track for robbing him of the beat behind Rozay’s new Jay Z assisted track. Accusing the “Round Of Applause” producer of taking the beat after Seven decided against signing with KE’s conglomerate Beat Mechanics, Seven went to Twitter to vent all of his frustrations, outright designating KE a thief.

The story gets even more confusing as KE On The Track also released a making of the beat video yesterday to further explain the song’s the concept. The track is now available for purchase on iTunes and ironically neither of the two are listed in the composer tab.

  • Clondyke Classic

    he wasn’t really explain’n the tracc as if he made it so dude just might be a thief.. most niggas that make beat videos usually break it down tracc for tracc. this guy is a fraud lol

  • Bob

    There is only one .wav track on the screen. He obviously stole it.

  • theartsnobs

    that dude looks like he never even touched a beat machine

  • -Vamp&Vape-

    most producers will never go in detail as to how the actual beat is made. reason why, people like to do remakes so if they see the whole breakdown, they can easily remake it and pass it off as their own work…BUT, we can’t say whether he stole it or not…

  • -Vamp&Vape-

    and also, whoever is claimed to have made the beat should have made sure it was legally protected in case such situation occurs..his loss if he didn’t..

    It’s a 5 second SAMPLE looped over drums. Dudes won’t learn, you use a sample in your beat and you will get jacked and there’s not sh*t you can do about it. You can’t copyright a kick, hihat, and snare and that’s the only thing original in this beat.

      actually you can copyright something if done in your own style, if it’s an original piece of work with original samples or permisson given samples. You just have to register it for it to be considered copyright, and the people that can’t or don’t know how to do that are fuckd over.
