Mariah Carey Claps Back At Rapper Who Sampled ‘Shake It Off’

Published: Monday 10th May 2021 by Ryan

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.

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.”

    🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️ THIS IS WHY ARTIST DEVELOPMENT IS STILL NECESSARY❗❗❗❗❗Maybe it’s not common sense anymore with this bullsh!t axx generation that samples have to be cleared before releasing a song. It’s probably not a good idea to record the song, shoot a video, release and promote said sampled song. Mini may have been playing but every artist won’t! Understand, artists don’t play about sampling because it’s money they are literally entitled to no matter how good you think your song is.

      You can do that as long as you’re not profiting off of it. That’s why mixtapes exist duh.

        You can still be penalized for it, making a profit or not. It depends on if an artist what to take it there and if a judge agrees. Especially I’d you samples someone’s music without clearance and it’s your big break into the music scene. You can’t use anyone’s copyrighted anything without clearance and there’s no chance of being penalized.

      This is why SPELLING and GRAMMAR is still necessary! But you’re black so you get a pass, as according to Biden, blacks can’t read or write 💯

    She’s a mean woman.
    Always ready to throw shade and be mean to people.

    When are people in the industry gonna start calling her out for her abusive behaviour.
    What a bìtch.

      I don’t know her (personally) but what I can tell you : she treats her fans like no other.
      Before social medias, she would leave voice notes on her website.
      Her assistants would pick up fans waiting by hotels so they could give her gifts personally.
      She sometimes buys food for her fans when they are in line to wait for a gig.
      And having witnessed it myself at an award show years ago : she stopped at the red carpet and signed autographs. When most people who didn’t have 1% of her credentials just walked off without a care.
