The R&B crew Dvsn is back with new music. They asked Jay-Z to clear a sample to one of his songs, which the music mogul called “toxic” before clearing.
The Canadian R&B duo is preparing to drop new music for the summer.
However, before doing so, they needed to clear their sample request with hip-hop legend Jay-Z for his track “Song Cry.”
Dvsn took to Twitter to announce the greenlight by sharing a screenshot of the approval with a conversation between Jay-Z and super producer Jermaine Dupri.
In the text messages, Hov explains to JD how “toxic” the song is; he wrote:
“ I didn’t think one could make a song more toxic than ‘Song Cry.’ I stand corrected.”
Dvsn thinks otherwise, saying the song isn’t toxic but rather honest. They wrote:
“Thx @jermainedupri for clearing the Jay-z sample … and Idk if the song’s TOXIC it’s more just… honest.”
Jay also has his fair share of toxic songs he can add to the list: “Do It Again,” “Big Pimping,” and “I Know What Girls Like.”
Rapper Doe Boy Begs JLo To Clear “I’m Real”
Speaking of sample clearing. Rapper Doe Boy went to Instagram and played a snippet of an unreleased single that samples JLo and Ja Rule‘s duet classic “I’m Real.”
He was seemingly begging JLo to clear the sample:
“J.Lo, can you please clear my song? I need you to clear my song. Please, I’ll give you whatever. The streets want to hear that. This is how much I love you, I’ve been loving since I was a kid.”
Fellow rappers within the music industry also want the song cleared. Bobby Shmurda commented, saying, “Clear that bitch.”
