So that statement was apparently a fake.  Here is Fame‘s official statement.

  • Its true I didn’t do the beat “Rude Bastards” as Kil said….I heard it, it was hot and I rhymed on it…I’d never steal a beat, that’s not me…and the quote on the net is not from me I’m looking into who made that statement as me

    Laze (M.O.P’s manager) was handling the credits, I gave him the info for who did the beat.

    I just saw the finished artwork and my 1st comment was, “I didn’t do that beat why does it say I did”? (Ref. To “rude bastard”)

    -Lil Fame aka Fizzy Womack of M.O.P.

Philadelphia producer, Rahaman Kilpatrick, has come out to claim that the 9th track on M.O.P.‘s upcoming album The FoundationRude Bastard” was jacked from him without receiving proper credit. According to this statement posted on a DJ Premier blog Mr. Kilpatrick stated

  • Back in September 2008, MOP, Joe Buddens, Termanology and Big Shugg came down to Sonar in B’more and me and my peeps go to the show. I pass out beat cd’s to Term, Joe and during MOP’s show I give it to Laze E Laze’s son who’s the hype man. Now, fast forward to September 2009 and I’m listening to MOP’s Foundation album on my way home from work and when track #9 “Rude Bastard” comes on….it’s MY FUCKING BEAT! Not the same sample, the SAME BEAT! Drum programming, sample, chops…the whole damn beat! Then my man Mills does the knowledge for me to see who got credit for the track on the album and it says “produced by Fizzy Womack”! So…I don’t get a check, I don’t get credit…I don’t even get co production credit! And I’m not looking for no “feel sorry for me” or none of that hoopla…I’m just asking for cats to let ANYONE who ya’ll know who loves hip hop to know who did the track so I can @ least get credit from my peers (hip hop fans and other producer’s grinding out there)for the beat. I’ve been grinding @ this beat thing for YEARS and for my first placement for a major artist to be a jack move…it just ain’t right…but it is what it is…like I said do me this justice and @ least let the hip hop heads ya’ll know that the bol Kil from Philly gave MOP THAT heat…not no fucking Fizzy Womack…

Lil Fame was quick to come back with this rather “Rude Bastard” response.

  • Shit happens bro. Tag your beat next time, i just happened to have that record, and did the shit up myself! Your version was way too LQ for us to even use it and trust me nigga, your drums are not rare. i got drums out the woodwork, but thank you for finding the right tuned snare for this sample. It’s not your beat anymore nigga, i re-created (as you did as well) with the same record, so LiL FaMe is the one claim!!! Don’t take it there either, we known to mash out. You know you love that song nigga.

Here is the version as it appears on The Foundation.  “Rude Bastard“.  Here is the beat from Rahaman Kilpatrick.  “Rahaman Kilpatrick Beat“.

I mean I kind of feel bad for Mr. Kilpatrick, but welcome to the music business.  You get repeatedly pimped until you get into a position to pimp other people.  Plus while Fame did clearly jack it, he proably did re-make it from scratch.  At the end of the day Lil Fame 1, Mr. Kilpatrick 0.  The best part is when Fame tells Mr. Kilpatrick he loves the track.  Classic.
