Migos Accused of Jacking Rising Producer’s Beat and Not Giving Him Proper Credit
Since the release of Migos’ new album Culture II, the project has become a hot topic on social media. But the Atlanta trio was also embroiled in some controversy when a rising producer jumped on Instagram to reveal that they jacked his beat.
First spotted on Reddit and later reported on Pigeon and Planes, up-and-coming producer JSDG Beats called out the Migos for beat jacking on the LP track “Movin’ Too Fast.” In a series of posts on his Instagram account, which have since been deleted, he accused the "Bad and Boujee" trio of removing his tags and credit from the track, along with co-producer Manny Flexx.
JSDG Beats was able to post screenshots of evidence that seem to show that Offset had opened a file JSDG sent to him via Hubspot. He also provided screenshots of the file for the track, which has his name credited to the 808 drums used on the song. He also posted a image of what appears to be an email he sent to Migos containing the beat in question.
"I put my number and all. And they labeled it huncho on the beat," he wrote. "I did not wake up today to find out Migos stole a beat from me. BRO REALLY?????"
"Quavo your [sic] crazy," he added. "For real never knew you made beats...I wonder what your next beat will sound like?"
JSDG Beats, who has produced tracks for Jim Jones, Dave East and Desiigner, would later go on his IG page and tell his followers that the beat jacking situation has been addressed.
"#BLESSED #culture2 Movin’ Too Fast Prod. By @mannyflexx x @jsdgbeats Everything is being handled professionally. @offsetyrn #drummaholikz" he wrote.
Migos' Culture II features production from Kanye West, Pharrell, Drake and even Quavo himself. Reps for the ATL trio had no comment on the matter.
