Mr Vegas: Drake Is Fake for Sampling Dancehall Artists Without Credit

In his latest installment of MV Cornver, dancehall recording artiste Mr. Vegas aired his frustration with Drake new album “Views,” calling him fake for sampling various dancehall artiste without giving any credits.

“Why did Drake link Beenie Man to on sing back that record if that’s the one he wanted? Or why let Beenie Man do something new?” asks Vegas. “So then I’m listening to the record further and at the end of the record when the record done, you can hear the record fin, Beenie Man doing the outro. So I’m like, Drake a ramp wid my artist! You using my artist as intro man!”

Vegas is referring to Beenie Man’s blatant “Tear Off Mi Garment” sample on “Controlla” that he feels Drake didn’t take full advantage of. Vegas then refers to another dancehall-sampled track on Views – “Too Good,” which features Rihanna and Popcaan.

“I’m listening to the record like, “Where’s Poppy? So me say fast forward and at the end of the record again is another sample and the sample is from Popcaan. An old Popcaan record!”

What Vegas found especially troubling with the Views reggae sampling was that no dancehall artist sampled got credit.

“Does the real Drake really love dancehall or is he just fake and because dancehall is right now the hottest genre, he use 40 or 50 percent dancehall on his album because he realizes that this is the hot thing right now?”
