Just days after the Brick Squad rapper posted all his mixtapes to SoundCloud, DatPiff’s vice president Kyle “KP” Reilly posted a tweet that questioned Waka’s motives.
Waka didn’t take too kindly to Reilly’s comment and began to blast the online mixtape distributor for its alleged shady practices. The 31-year-old artist referred to DatPiff as “culture vultures” and accused the company of exploiting musicians whose projects are featured on the website. Reilly made an apparent effort to remedy the situation, even asking Waka to hop on a call; however, the rapper clearly wasn’t interested.

Waka concluded his rant with a pretty big announcement. He claimed he has already started his own mixtape streaming company that will actually pay music acts for the streams.
