In a separate video posted on X (formerly known as Twitter), Wave elaborated on his position, saying, “HOW IS IT FOUL? ITS BUIZNESS N YOU KNOW THAT. YOU AINT GO DO THAT TO NO OTHER MAJOR LABEL WITHOUT COMPENSATING THEM WITH THEY SPLITS‼️ WHY DO IT TO A N-GGA YOU LOOKED UP TOO.”
Boosie continued, questioning the fairness of the situation: “U EXPECT ME TO LET U TAKE MY KIDS PUBLISHING GTFOH STOP PLAYING VICTIM MY N-GGA IS U GO SAMPLE NO LIMIT, BAD BOY, CASH MONEY, SO SO DEF, MICHEAL JACKSON, MARVIN GAYE [and] PRINCE WORD FOR WORD FOR FREE? NO.”
In this ongoing dispute, both artists are at odds over the use of musical elements without proper authorization. Rod Wave asserts his willingness to negotiate, emphasizing a desire to settle the matter amicably.
