Rap veteran Uncle Luke recently co-signed French Montana’s “Pop That” anthem but noted he has not yet received a single penny for the 2 Live Crew-sampled track.
Although he co-signed it as a smash, Luke said he is still awaiting some compensation.
“Pop That,” set to appear on French’s forthcoming debut Excuse My French, samples the former 2 Live Crew rapper’s single “I Wanna Rock.” And according to Luke, he hasn’t been compensated just yet. “When I heard the song I said, ‘Oh this is a hit,’ and the next thing I said is, ‘Where’s my check?” Luke told MTV News on the red carpet at the 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards. “Ain’t nobody told me about my check yet. I have not gotten the check yet, so I’m looking for the check,” he said, adding that he would track down French’s boss to sort it all out. “I’m gonna talk to Diddy in the back about it.”
This is EbenGregory.com…telling Uncle Luke there’s always something to be thankful for. If you can’t pay your bills, you can be thankful you’re not one of your creditors.
