DJ Prince Kaybee has been very vocal lately about artists he feels are not contributing to the music industry. Kaybee wants the slackers out!
Taking to social media, Kaybee gave his thoughts on artists featuring others who have just jumped on the track without making any contribution, reported TimesLIVE.
Sometimes musicians create a track, lyrics and all, and pull in another artist to sing a verse. Kaybee feels these artists do not deserve recognition as they played no part in creating the content of the track, and that is where it is at.

“Don’t feature artists that don’t contribute to the music composition or lyrics, people that are just there for aesthetics, now deals are coming in and they must be paid because they are on the title of the song. It hurts”
Kaybee’s statement evoked some strong responses. While some understood where he was coming from, others felt the recognition is totes deserved and the money should be paid!
@ROADSDSG feels it is a sore spot for Kaybee, shame:
“You went to feature Shimza and Blackmotion on uwrongo while they didn't contribute. I guess you learned.”
