#HalfcastPodcast discuss Paigey vs Leshurr and more

The Halfcast podcast crew discuss the recent disagreements in the music scene.

Chuckie, Poet, Savage Dan and Vuj get together for a new episode of the Halfcast podcast. This time they’re speaking about Paigey Cakey vs Lady Leshurr and Big Shaq vs 67.

As the team discuss the recent social media disagreement between Paigey Cakey and Lady Leshurr they try to establish why resolving issues has been brought to Twitter.

Chuckie makes an example that if he had an issue with a former friend he would call them directly, and Poet backs it up with saying that back in the day everything would be said face to face. However, they agree that their methods are now seen as old school.

They delve further into the issue to try to figure out exactly why it was brought to social media. Is it due to indirects? Has Paigey Cakey not gotten over the relationship? Is it something to do with the fact that Lady Leshurr is doing well musically? Watch the episode to find out what the Halfcast crew think – and to hear what advice Poet offers.

Also, in this clip, the team discuss Big Shaq vs 67. Apparently, there was an issue raised over the fact that Michael Dapaah didn’t include 67 in the Mans Not Hot remix – after using the Let’s Lurk beat.

Poet informs the team that the beat was used by 86 first, and makes the example that: “I can’t rob something off you, and then be mad when someone robs it off me”. Do you agree with that statement?

A great example is used, where the recycled use of riddims in Jamaican dancehall is mentioned. People have been making different tracks over the same beat for years and it hasn’t been an issue, so why is it now?

The team go through a lot of reasonings as to why they think things have changed in this scenario, mentioning that artists from the hood may feel entitled. Do you agree?

Chuckie points out that as long as the producer, who owns the beat, is getting paid then no one else should be upset. We would like to know what you, as the viewers, think about this topic.

Do the artists have the right to feel that they must be included, or is it fine as long as the producer is being paid?
