Kia Shine Speaks on Drake Royalty Situation

01

After all the hoopla surrounding Kia Shine allegedly ghostwriting for Drake, we spoke to Kia ourselves and got to the bottom of it. Just as some industry experts stated, it was a situation where Kia Shine did a record for Lil Wayne called “Do It for the Boy” and according to his blog on Global Grind:

“Drake sampled the melody, some of the words, cadence, etc. So because I had already registered the original record, my business was in order. I sent in the Drake record and let my legal team handle it from there. We were able to settle at 25% of the “Best I Ever Had” publishing. It’s a blessing, but the moral of the story is to “follow up to get your dollars up” and always be prepared and on top of your business. People should really read my discography and they would understand that this in no surprise. They will respect my mind and my grind soon enough.”

Then we asked Kia Shine about Drake’s response:
“I have never met Kia Shine or worked with him. I wrote the entire composition in Toronto and I borrowed one line from a Lil Wayne song that he produced the BEAT for. The claims of 25% ownership are false and for a artist to brag about splits on a song is distasteful to begin with.”

Kia Shine replied:
“First of all, no one is bragging about it. Once I got the BMI award and it happened and it started to get out. I’m just giving the information about what happened…it’s been quiet. I’ve known about this since January.”

But you know what really sums it up best?
“That royalty check will be the best I ever had.”

  3. Why is this public? This is a behind the scenes issue. What does Kia want to accomplish by airing out the laundry in public…..AMILLIE wasnt originally produced by bangledesh. Bang bought it then put his signature drums on it and that guy was running his mouth around town too….

    Kia wants publicity clap for him.

  27. When you’re in a not good position and have no cash to go out from that point, you will need to receive the mortgage loans. Because it would aid you for sure. I take small business loan every year and feel OK because of it.
