Erykah Badu is going after Papoose for allegedly using her vocals without getting permission. Badu took to Twitter last week to blast Papoose for putting vocals that she claims she sang ten years ago on his new track “Cure.” Badu writes that Papoose is putting out her “old material” and adds that there was “no paperwork” giving the rapper permission to use her vocals. Papoose later responded on his account, writing that Badu’s accusations of there not being any paperwork were “false.” He also questioned why Badu would not be happy to “create awareness” for people living with AIDS and cancer, subjects which Papoose tackles on “Cure.” Check out the song below:
“Cure” is supposed to be featured on Papoose’s album “The Nacimera Dream” we will see for how long…
The homies over at Singersroom.com reports Taking to Twitter, Badu addressed the song and the fact that there was no paperwork done for it..
“This Papoose song Cure. I sang those vocals 10 years ago. That’s 2 babies ago. Sheeeit. So mcs just throwing out old material- no paperwork,” said Badu. “They already have the cure by now.”
Despite feeling a way about the song’s release, Erykah Badu retweeted Papoose, promoting his album on her timeline.
“Getting INCREDIBLE response on the album thanx 2 EVERYBODY who bought it really appreciate the support,” Papoose wrote.
Papoose’s new album, “The Nacirema Dream,” is available now.
