When Game's new Drillmatic album dropped last Thursday night, NBA YoungBoy was featured on the track 'O.P.P.'
However, the song and feature have since been removed. Wack 100 explained why during a chat with Ma$e on Clubhouse.
"Sometimes when it comes down to a situation that I had to make an executive decision about. In YoungBoy's defense, YoungBoy charges n*ggas 300,000 a verse. That's what he charge. He gave us a hell of deal [150K]. But that situation would have cut into marketing overall. So I had to make the executive decision to pay the tab he sent me, which was a respectable great tab. It was love. But that tab would have cut into that, that and that ... nothing against YoungBoy, he didn't disrespect us, Wack explained.
Wack went on to say that if the album was only 20 songs he could have paid YB. But when it ended up being 3o songs there were too many samples to clear.
While 'O.P.P.' isn't currently on the album, Wack says it will soon return to streaming services without YB's verse.
It sounds like Wack realized he couldn't pay YoungBoy when the dismal first-week projections for Drillmatic came in.
