However, according to Trill, he has never received any money from the songs he worked on.

Speaking to L-Tido, Trill said he was dealt a bad hand when he came into the music industry with no knowledge of what a split sheet was:

"You're a youngin from e'lockshin; what do you know about split sheets? But as somebody who has been in the game and has seen that money, you tell me about them. But nobody tells you, and by the time you understand the concepts, the money has already been chowed. They call it 'school fees.'"

"That's when I realised that I needed a publisher, who later told me that that broer took 100% of everything. Now, when I start demanding my money, you start getting mad because I caught you; then you start blackballing me."
