You’re Killin’ Me: “She Will” Thieves
Why are there two other songs with the same exact beat as Lil Wayne’s “She Will“? How did they get the beat? Did T-Minus produce it? At this point like many of you, I have more questions than answers. I’ve tried contacting Gramz and J-Lie, but nobody wants to talk. So I’ll assume, T-Minus produced the beat, and that somehow these guys unknowingly took the beat. Whoever took this beat and sold it away, you’re killin’ me. If you’re calling Lil Wayne a thief, you’re killin’ me.
Here’s J-Lie’s version. According to him “Letting Go” was recorded 5 months ago, which would be in March. This video was uploaded to YouTube on August 11, 2011, a day before Wayne officially released “She Will”. I like the way J-Lie handled the situation though. Most rappers would diss Wayne, but he doesn’t. I can tell that he isn’t doing this for attention either, he’s just letting the world know. But this situation is still killin’ me.
And here’s Gramz’ version, uploaded to YouTube on February 11, 2011. This is a pretty good version if you ask me. Gramz much like J-Lie doesn’t create too much drama, he doesn’t call Wayne out. He even tries to resolve the issue with T-Minus over twitter. But, the fact that Gramz has this beat kills me.
What leads me to believe that these beats were stolen is that T-Minus is not mentioned in the credits. If you have a major producer like T-Minus produce a track for you, you’re going to let everybody know. I am not necessarily saying J-Lie or Gramz stole the beat; I believe that they were somehow stolen from T-Minus then given to J-Lie and Gramz. But, if you’re in possession of stolen property, under the law you’re a thief.
J-Lie and Gramz, you’re killin’ me.
Those of you who are calling Wayne a thief, you’re also killin’ me. Wayne legally obtained this beat from the legal owner, T-Minus. How does that make him a thief? I’m also aware that Weezy was recently sued over the beat for “How To Love“, once again it’s not Wayne’s fault. He bought the beat, and these producers did him wrong. While I’m at it, Drummer Boyz, you’re killin’ me. I thought Detail produced the beat though? Producers have to quit with all this shady business. It’ll be interesting to see if anybody files any lawsuits over “She Will”.
