Exclusive: Miguel Responds to Roscoe Dash's Claim That He Wrote Wale's "Lotus Flower Bomb" Chorus

Roscoe Dash went on Twitter today to air his grievances for not getting credited on Wale's "Lotus Flower Bomb," which features singer Miguel. Dash said the same about G.O.O.D. Music's Cruel Summer, but went on to say he wrote the chorus for Wale's hit long before the D.C. rapper signed to Maybach Music Group. 

Miguel, who sings the chorus on "Lotus Flower Bomb" and received a writing credit, says he knows his own involvement on the track, and that the people who deserve credit on the song are listed in the credits. Miguel hadn't spoken to Wale yet but says if Roscoe Dash wants to get the situation figured out, he shouldn't do it via Twitter. Read his quotes below.

Miguel Responds to Roscoe Dash's Claim That He Wrote Wale's "Lotus Flower Bomb" Chorus

As far as I know, Wale and another artist that I recently met penned the original 'Lotus Flower Bomb' chorus and I came in and added the second half or the end part of the chorus...I'm not going to explain myself, this is retarded. I don't know anything about Roscoe Dash. At the end of the day, I know my involvement in the song and as far as I know, Wale and I, and this other guy, wrote the chorus. He was kind of like an alternative artist.

 

If he wrote a part of it, he should get credit for it, but as far as I know, the people who deserve credit on the song are listed. Twitter is not the place to handle business.

 

I think anyone that wants to know who wrote the song can check the credits. I don't know, I don't really care. If he did write part of it, then he should get credit for it. All I know is that I didn't write my portion of the song with Wale in the room-he was in Atlanta, I was in New York. If anyone had any involvement prior to me being involved, that's really unbeknownst to me. Definitely if he wrote a part of it, he should get credit for it but as far as I know, the people who deserve credit on the song are listed. Twitter is definitely not the place to handle business per say. If he wanted to get that rectified, he would have his lawyer contact the proper people.
