After deleting the tweet, the producer explained that friends and family has stopped him from "fully exposing frauds in this biz." He noted that that he didn't want to get caught up in a legal battle that could prevent him from releasing his own music, then continued to say that he didn't have "10 milly" to deal with the consequences.
And while the direct references to West and Drake have been pulled down, he did offer the following advice to up-and-coming producers: "Mainstream rappers have less business sense than ur mum."
