The producer had threatened to leak unreleased Kanye and Drake tracks

Hudson Mohawke has clarified that recent comments he made claiming to have not been paid for beats produced for Kanye West and Drake were not meant as personal criticism to the rappers involved.

The Scottish producer – real name Ross Birchard – briefly threatened to leak a ZIP file of unreleased Kanye West and Drake tracks after allegedly not being paid for them.

“Literally about to release zip of Kanye and Drake songs that I got [0 emoji] for,” he posted on Twitter before swiftly deleting the tweet. He also said his advice for upcoming producers was that “mainstream rappers have less business sense than [your] mum”.

Now Hud Mo has taken to Twitter to thank fellow producers for their support over the matter. He said: “I really appreciate everyone hitting me on mail and DM saying thank god someone said this publicly”.

The producer then went on to claim that he has “absolutely no personal issue” with West and that his issue is with “lawyers who weren’t in the room on their side”.
