*It hasn’t even been three days since the new Rick Ross/Jay Z single “The Devil is a Lie” dropped, and already it’s the subject of a lawsuit.
After Ross released the song on SoundCloud (listen after the jump), the single’s producer, Ke On The Track, was targeted on Twitter by fellow producer Omar Walker – aka Major Seven.
Although Ke On The Track released a video showing him producing the beat, Seven takes credit for its creation.
Walker wrote, “Rick Ross feat. Jayz Devil is a Lie prod. by Me stolen by @_keonthetrack… this guy is a straight thief!!!!”
He then promised to prove his claim to fans in a video of his own, adding, “when i make the beat vid (video) for devil is a lie, it wont be fake like Ke’s i will show yall every individual sound! and the dates on (recording) sessions.”
Ke On The Track appeared to dismiss Walker’s allegations by quoting a line from Jay Z’s hit “Takeover,” simply tweeting, “We don’t believe you , you need more people”, but he has failed to comment on the issue in more detail.
Walker returned to Twitter on Friday and suggested the truth will prevail, stating: “sometimes it’s just hard to keep silent on issues even when you know that in the Long Run, the truth will be Loud and CLEAR Patience.”
Ke On The Track had initially been credited as the producer on “The Devil Is A Lie,” but his name has subsequently been removed.
Ross and Jay Z have yet to speak out about the behind-the-scenes dispute.
