Mariah Carey isn’t mincing words.
After the music video surfaced of rapper YTK’s song ‘Let It Off,’ – which samples ‘Shake It Off’ from her ‘The Emancipation of Mimi’ album – the Songbird Supreme took to Twitter to let it be known she may not be on board with the interpolation of her hit song.
More details below…
Twitter user Tommy Banks shared a clip of the video with the comment:
“Mariah Carey has 24 hours to respond.”

To which, Carey did respond, saying:
“How about y’all have 24 hours to respond to my lawyer.”

However, it is unclear if she is actually taking any legal action or if it was simply a playful response. Banks, who shared the original tweet, has since replied and stressed that Mimi was joking.
hey I want to reiterate that Mariah was joking, please stop saying rude shit to her.
She told that same joke to Quest Love hours before she responded to the tweet
and put us in contact with the people who can help us clear it!
so it’s not a problem on her end pic.twitter.com/na96mWyVBz

As for YTK, he suggested that he is not stressed about the situation, saying:
“The queen of r&b is in my mentions. It has not been 24hrs… lord.”
