Young Chop Fights With Security At A3C, Accuses Kanye West Of Exploiting Young Chicago Artists

Chicago drill producer Young Chop, the guy who produced Chief Keef’s breakout “I Don’t Like,” was famously displeased that Kanye West released his all-star remix of the track without consulting Chop about it. Chop expressed those frustrations when Kanye’s remix dropped in 2012, and three years later, he’s logged some further criticism of Kanye. As XXL points out, Chop posted a series of Instagram videos this week condemning Kanye for what Chop sees as vampiric behavior toward young Chicago hip-hop artists. He cites “I Don’t Like” as well as Kanye’s recent work with Vic Mensa, who happened to show up on a new Young Chop track this week. The key complaint, in Chop’s own words:

[Kanye] use you, try to soak up everything niggas know, get you to write songs for him and then don’t call you after that. Fuck him! Say for instance, like, “Don’t Like” and my boy Vic Mensa. He gonna make it seem like he put them on. And he really fuckin’ didn’t. Niggas started from the bottom.

Grantland’s Sean Fennessey wrote something similar about Kanye and Jay Z a couple years ago you should read.
