Teyana Taylor Claps Back At Mykki Blanco Over ‘WTP’ Diss

Published: Friday 17th Jul 2020 by Sam

Teyana Taylor may be pregnant, but she’s not backing down from jabs.

For, moments ago, the R&B singer found herself at the center of a spar with Mykki Blanco. 

A performer and transgender activist, Blanco featured on Taylor’s jam ‘WTP (Work That P**sy’ – which is lifted from 2018 album ‘K.T.S.E.’

Yet, in a heated social media entry, the 34-year-old blasted the experience and lamented non-payment for their services.

Taking specific aim at Taylor, several accusations were hurled – including allegations of negative bias surrounding their HIV status.

Taylor was having none of it.

The exchange after the jump…

Mykki kicked off the spar when they took to Instagram with the following:

“Can you believe it’s been two years and Universal Music has still not paid me my feature fee for this song? Can you believe it took 1 year with the help of my lawyer to get credited on the song, because it did. I wrote on and co- produced this track as well as writing the verse that Kanye literally raps on “Hurry”. Is that a big accomplishment to write for other artists NO, this isn’t about clout.
.
The reason I have gone public with this is not to bad mouth @teyanataylor, but her ENTIRE team and Universal have treated me WITH SO MUCH DISRESPECT, THEY HAVE TREATED ME BAD YALL… REALLY BAD, I HATE DOING THIS ON SOCIAL MEDIA BUT I HAVE HAD IT!!!!! It’s a pandemic, like so many musicians I’m completely out of work. I’m doing writing jobs here and there but almost all of my income like so many others stems from touring. I’ve had it, I didn’t want to go public but the way I have been treated is really, really, really bad. These people have been flippant, rude, they have lied, delayed, found me “harmless” and “inconsequential”.
.
I’m asking all of my fans PLEASE DO NOT STREAM “WTP”.
.
PLEASE DO NOT STREAM @teyanataylor “WTP”.
.
I’ve had it, everything associated with this song and these people is ANTI- LGBTQ 🏳️‍🌈. It’s a lie, after 2 years and during a pandemic they still act like paying me a simple feature fee is a joke. This song and these people do not support Black, Trans & Queer people, it’s a lie I’m done participating in.
.
Universal thinks making me wait 2 years for proper credit and a simple feature fee is okay. They think I’m a small artist with inconsequential reach.
.
Please I ask you, stop streaming and never stream again “WTP”.

Teyana responded with:

It wasn’t long before Mykki hit back with:

“I have been QUITE about this for 2 WHOLE YEARS. QUIET. MUTE. SILENT. IT’S A PANDEMIC, NOBODY CAN TOUR OR PLAY SHOWS. YES I’M COUNTING MY COINS AND YOUR TEAM REPEATEDLY DID ME DIRTY. I WAS “INCONSEQUENTIAL FALLOUT”. I’MMA LET YOU REST, BUT DON’T PLAY ME BABY!

Ok GIRL. Your manager has been dodging my manager like he owe him back child support. Teyana you wanna play in my face now that I made it hot. TWO YEARS YOUR TEAM HAS BEEN PLAYING ME. TWO YEARS!!! Your dead ass right. It’s a pandemic and I am tired of being treated like TRASH

You know very well I am a jet set bitch. Don’t do this “your poor” Black classism act, because you don’t have the range. This is about how it has taken 2 years for your team to treat me like a human being.

We not EVEN gonna get into the fact that you were very uncomfortable when you found out I had HIV, You tried your hardest to edit me out the music video and then gonna put Lena Waithe and a bunch more “palatable” Black Queer people all in the sh*t.

So guess what, I’m gonna actually step away from my laptop now and go season this f*cking fish. Universal and Teyana’s team took 2 years to pay me, treated me like trash and because I’m now asking to be treated like a human being they doing their rich Black people capitalist act.

If you’ve seen the “WTP” video I’m in it for like 2 minutes even though I wrote and co-produced the song. They didn’t want a HIV + Black person getting all that shine so they threw in a bunch of Black Queer people that y’all would find more palatable instead of lifting me up.”

Taylor rounded off with:

“Okay this is clearly about a pandemic coin. you got my whole #. People who know, knows I’m a giver! Idk you well but I don’t have to know a person that well to give. I HAVE NOT received one text or even a dm about what you’ve been put thru. So as I said, u handling this is wack.

WHEW CHILLLEEEEE the delusion Woozy face We are not going to get into that because it’s simply a lie. I knew nothing of ya status prior to today. Baby please take a nap. I see what’s going on here. Leave me alone, I’m done with this.

I Eyes u didn’t defend ya self on the part about: “YOU HAVE MY WHOLE # & haven’t sent me ONE TEXT OR DM ABOUT what u have been going thru the last 2 years”. Proves my point. Even tho I don’t like how u handled me, I will make sure the LABEL get you paid. NOW that i know. Good day.

Whew.

    Teyana wants us to believe that she is not a vulture like Kanye yet she misgenders Mykki the entire time… when it’s time to kiss another girl on cameras for clout it’s hot right? eugh. bye girl

    • Qynari July 18, 2020

      She did not misgender that man,so stop that madness.

  2. Hmmm… July 17, 2020

    I mean, it is YOUR team sis. Kanye was YOUR executive producer and collaborator. You can’t have a team behind you and then blame them and take no responsibility when things go wrong. They represent you. They’re a reflection of you. She could’ve kept this paragraph, and just said “I have no control over my career and just went along with whatever Kanye told me to”.

  3. Fancy BISH July 17, 2020

    MESSeeeeeeeeeee 🤣 ☕️

  4. J July 17, 2020

    Reason 100million why you shouldnt do any deals with Kanye

  5. Drinkmybussyjuice July 17, 2020

    I like Teyana, BUT with your name attached you should be aware of everything going on with the album. Its crazy have little creative control these artist get for something that their name is plastered on. Make it make sense.

  6. Clarks0o0ñ July 17, 2020

    TGJ definitely siding with teyana Taylor with that bullshìt headline

    They did mykki dirty.

  7. Clarks0o0ñ July 17, 2020

    “Even tho I don’t like how u handled me, I will make sure the LABEL get you paid.”

    Gurl, u are TRASH. U have been exposed as a phoney
    Admit u are wrong and make things right instead of writing essays defending ur shìtty behaviour.

    this woman called teyana Taylor doesmt stand for the lgbt community. She’s only doing it cause she is benefitting from it. She’s a thief and a rat.

    She tried to play this “ur attacking a black woman, why cant u attack kanye west, a man” card but she failed.

    What a stupid manly bìtch.

    And u guys complain how white people do black people dirty, black people screw over fellow black people the most.

    Look at what pharrell did to kelis

    Look at what diddy did to maze

    Look at what megan thee stallion record label (black owner) is doing to her

    This fraud really thinks she’s a star. Huge ego, disgustingly arrogant, yet has no ‘it’ factor and desperately tries to emulate her idols from the 80s and 90s ie Janet Jackson. She is no Janet.

  9. Holliewuudd July 17, 2020

    She should have made sure he got paid but if she personally didn’t know then how could she? I would definitely ne having a conversation with my manager of i didn’t know. But then again since she didn’t even approve the feature she might’ve been like fcuk it! And I’m on the fence on the misgender component. Not enough facts on whether they had conversations about what he likes to be called. I’ve never even heard of him.

    • Paulo July 17, 2020

      So you and Teyana both telling you got internet to type all that b******* but not to even google Mykki and see she prefers being called she or they? Dumb ass transparent bigot

      • Holliewuudd July 17, 2020

        I honestly DGAF what him she they them want TF to be called. And, no, I DIDN’T GAF enough to Google hin she they them want to be called either. Any more questions??

  10. JA_LA July 17, 2020

    Apparently none of you know how the music BUSINESS works. Teyana, the talent, is not involved in the BUSINESS of her album. The LABEL is responsible for all of that. Just like they get to say what goes on the album and if the album is even released or not. Teyana gets paid a percentage of album sales. Chances are she does not own the music she creates, the LABEL does. If you all really think that an artist is responsible for, or even aware of, everything that goes on with their projects then you should do a little research on the music industry. This is why so many artists have issues with their labels and are unhappy in their situations.

    • Holliewuudd July 17, 2020

      Correct. And also is why stars like Beyonce manages herself so she CAN be aware of the business side.

      • BeQuiet!!! July 18, 2020

        Yup because Beyonce wanted to manage her career and not have her shady a*** father do it.

  11. Qynari July 18, 2020

    Wow this dude is a real trip. This is why I as a natural born female (which is the only way to be female) do not have much for men who pretend to be women because many of these men can’t stand women.

  12. No Tea No Shade July 18, 2020

    Quiet as it’s kept.

    Teyana and her team always been bad with paying ppl. A lot of invoices haven’t been paid. But that’s another topic for another day.

  13. Garbaj July 20, 2020

    What a garbage song
