LETHAL Bizzle has revealed that Kem Cetinay and Chris Hughes “came to their senses” and agreed to pay him a percentage of the royalties for their single, Little Bit Leave It.
The grime staraired his grievances earlier this week after Love Island boys, who he calls “Kemp and Ross” stole his phrase “leave it” and failed to acknowledge him, however the conflict appears to have been swiftly solved with Bizzle now urging people to get behind the single.
Speaking on Instagram, he said: “Kemp and Ross came to their senses and we’ve agreed to a percentage of the Little Bit Leave It song there so no more issues.
“So you lot, go out there and support the ting cos now I’m getting paid for it, I’m going to make sure my cheque is healthy so support it, it’s out now and all that good stuff.”
The 33-year-old grime legend – who has been associated with the famous line “leave it” after he dropped his single Leave It Yeah in 2011 – was furious with the reality duo after they weaved his catchphrase into their track without crediting him.
Bizzle – whose real name is Maxwell Owusu Ansah – released a video on Twitter expressing how annoyed he was over the rap.
He said: “You couldn’t leave me alone init. Kemp and his other brother – I dunno what his name is – Ross, you took my phrase fam. Cool, I want everyone to use my phrase.
“Everyone knows I make up words but when you want to go and do a song and make money from them then I have a problem with that.
“So we need to have a conversation. Shabs – the guy who signed the record – I know him very well. I’m a very reasonable person so let’s just get this sorted out before it goes anywhere else because it doesn’t need to go anywhere else.
“I wasn’t even f***ing bothered about it to be honest, it was the people that made me realise: ‘Yo, Biz, are you getting a percentage out of that?’ And I sat down and I thought: ‘Hang on a minute, I should be getting a percentage out of this, shouldn’t I?’ “
The Go Hard hitmaker insists he doesn’t “need the money” but it’s the “principle.”
He explained: “I don’t need the money but the principle is you’re taking the piss. And you’re not even crediting where you got the phrase from. You’re using it like you made it popular. So listen, we need to have a conversation. Shabs, call me!”
Bizzle then followed it up by claiming that he was asked to jump on the track but he declined and wasn’t aware of the lyrics or the title when he was first approached.
He said: “The label asked me if I wanna jump on the Kemp & Ross new single, I declined. I didn’t hear it or know the tilte was #LittleBitLeaveIt (sic).”
The Love Island stars’ track is currently number 15 on the iTunes chart.
But it seems Bizzle isn’t the only one who is annoyed as their former Islander Marcel also posted a cryptic tweet reminding the pair about his involvement in the song.
In a tweet that has since been deleted, Marcel wrote: “Boys the tune sounds sick!!! I hope u did the right thing with the chorus & bars I wrote.”
Kem and Chris had first created the song in the Love Island villa alongside Marcel as a part of a talent show task.
The trio – who were called Run KMC – worked together on the lyrics while Marcel also created the beat on a keyboard that was provided for them.
