Right in the heels of the release of Lil Mama’s comeback track “Sausage”, she is met with some allegations that she stole the song from a Miami high school student named Matthew Belamy. It would appear from a short video that the sausage trend was created by this young Miami native. According to the Shade Room’s post about the allegations Matthew provided a photo of a DM (Direct Message) conversation between he and Lil Mama. EarHustle411 will just wait for Lil Mama to respond to the allegations and give her side (she could always reach out to EarHustle411)
Take a look at the post and video and then judge for yourself:
Lil Mama made a lot of noise when she released her new song #Sausage to the public, but the attention was for all of the wrong reasons! Many accused Lil’ Mama of being a culture vulture (in my Dame Dash voice) for stealing the very popular “sausage” song created by Matthew Belamy from Miami.
Well, Matthew recently released a video telling the WHOLE STORY (well his side of it) and its straight JANKY! You won’t believe what he said Lil’ Mama did to him.
Matthew says he created the song when he was in 10th grade during class. He freestyle the song as his friends taped him. Shortly after being posted on Facebook, his Miami friends began sharing the video and it quickly went viral.
So here comes Lil Mama, she DMs Matthew and acknowledges that he was the creator of the song and tells him her friend was shooting a video for the “sausage” song to “keep it going”. He said that’s cool and that he wanted to collaborate with them on the song and video. So Lil Mama tells him to call her assistant, he does, and they ask Matthew if he can come to New York because that’s where they are shooting the video.
Matthew is from the rough part of Miami and couldn’t afford his own ticket. Lil Mama tells him to look and see how much two grey hound tickets would cost to get him down there. He looks it up and sends Lil Mama the amount = $207.
He claims that at this point Lil Mama’s assistant called him back and told her that they were funding the project out of their pockets and couldn’t afford the tickets.
Now, Lil Mama finally releases the video and Matthew is counting the COINS! He says Lil Mama shut a street down in New York to film the video, she had background dancers, wardrobe, hair and make-up, basically a whole production for the video…but couldn’t afford to fly him to NY?
She knows ZAMN well she could have put a couple of hundred dollars in the budget to get him down there. THAT’S THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THE VIDEO! After all he is the creator!
Lil Mama if this is true you ain’t right boo! Pull your brother up! Don’t profit off of his creativity and leave him hanging!
