Mike Will Made-It Isn’t Happy About Future Songs Leaking
Two new Future songs, "Paparazzi" and "Guap On Me," appeared online yesterday (July 18), giving fans good reason to rejoice. Except Future himself wasn't too pleased by the release, writing on Twitter, "Song leaked today called paparazzi(dab) I did it as a reference phuckin around a year ago,the fact I'm saying dab in chorus I hate it." The tracks weren't released in any official manner and the leak bothered Mike WiLL Made-It as well, with the producer taking to Twitter late at night to vent his frustrations.
"After all we’ve released this is the thanks we get.. Never understood what a person would leak music, especially that’s not in its entire[ty]…Like after that what is gained?" he wrote. "People gotta learn how to respect the creative process, we spend time energy money etc creating records…Songs will be released BY US (the producer &/or artist) when the song is done, 100% & everyone is excited to release the finished product. Let us premiere our shit, how we like, when we like, we don’t want our shit on a lousy blog or a random scamming ass soundcloud…These weirdoes think it’s cool but it’s more a slap in the face… wasting songs and/or people’s time by having them listen to something that was never created to be heard.. The thirst too real, not spending time on this, focusing my energy on what I’ve been focusing my energy on to be released, no distractions. Hype beast devoted to have something first… Hop off the net."
In 2016 alone, Future has released Purple Reign, Evol and Project E.T., so Mike's point that the thirst should not be this high is valid. While most every rapper has a catalog of unreleased or unfinished music, the producer is fighting for artistic control over said cuts, such as what Streetrunner has been doing, releasing mastered versions of Lil Wayne oldies that never made it out.
