🚨PSA on Ba Wani Bugatti Leak
After seeing some reactions, I decided to provide some clarity on this and also soothe.
Three days ago I put up the Ba Wani Bugatti Remix by @morellakilah that features @classiq which I produced, on my soundcloud. First off, Morell had given me these vocals AFTER they had previously recorded it while we were working on #MusaJikanMusa last year. We had worked on a version of the idea but it didn't make it to the album. For the way we work, we experiment a lot and sometimes that means different versions of one song until we're satisfied. The vocals were sped up a little to match the uptempo nature of the grime sound we were going for and neither Morell nor Classiq's verses were unfavorably altered. In other words, the vocals are still the same way they were on the beat he (Classiq) originally recorded on, only slightly faster to match this different sound. If anything, I spent time editing certain parts of the beat to complement parts of both verses that stood out to me.
So.... Fast forward a few months later (three days ago), I'm listening through some of the records I and Morell are considering for our joint project that's soon to drop, and I stumbled on this song we had kind of forgotten. I felt convinced that the fans of these 2 very talented artists would love this collaboration and DESERVED to listen to this OTHER WORLDLY song we came up with, decided not to overthink things, and just uploaded it. At first I didn't think too many people would even see it because it wasn't a planned release and just for clarity MORELL WAS NOT INFORMED before I put it up, because again, in my mind the song had basically been shelved. Infact, Morell messaged and called me immediately he spotted my posts (swipe left) and was not too happy about it but he calmed down after I explained my point of view. He then decided to also upload it. That's it. No ill intent, just pure excitement and sharing what I feel is dope music for everyone to enjoy (albeit impulsively), and would really like that to remain the focus!
Much respect to my big bro and co-creator @MorellAkillah. To @classiq, his team and his fans, I offer my heartfelt
