OK…let’s keep it real, we all know Desiigner sounds like a Future ripoff, and “Panda” sounds like “Fuck Up Some Commas”. These are facts. Welp, in a new interview with DJBooth, Menace, the producer behind the smash hit, claims that Future actually filed a copyright infringement claim over it. “There was a situation with Future putting [an infringement] claim in because apparently, he said that ‘Panda’ sounded like ‘Fuck Up Some Commas,’” he says.
“Not only [Future], Mike Dean, Kanye West’s producer, he put a claim in as well saying that he did something to the beat and he never did.” According to Menace, the legal disputes mean that he has yet to receive full compensation for his work on “Panda,” which was famously sampled in The Life Of Pablo’s “Pt. 2.” “I doubt Kanye’s paid anyone, to be honest,” he adds. “Kanye’s a funny one when it comes to paying people money.”
So I’ve heard. Well I’m not a hater, but I hope Future really did it, because its a shame how that boy got away with jackin’ Future.
