Mykki Blanco Says They’ve Not Been Paid for Teyana Taylor Feature; Teyana Blames Kanye

Mykki Blanco Says They’ve Not Been Paid for Teyana Taylor Feature; Teyana Blames Kanye

Mykki Blanco has claimed that they’ve not been paid for their feature on Teyana Taylor’s K.T.S.E. song “WTP.” Mykki also claimed “it took [one] year with the help of [her] lawyer to get credited on the song,” and they asked fans to stop streaming the track. Mykki wrote:

The reason I have gone public with this is not to bad mouth [Teyana
Taylor], but her ENTIRE team and Universal [Music Group] have treated
me WITH SO MUCH DISRESPECT, THEY HAVE TREATED ME BAD Y’ALL… REALLY
BAD, I HATE DOING THIS ON SOCIAL MEDIA BUT I HAVE HAD IT!!!!! It’s a
pandemic, like so many musicians I’m completely out of work. I’m doing
writing jobs here and there but almost all of my income like so many
others stems from touring. I’ve had it, I didn’t want to go public but
the way I have been treated is really, really, really bad. These
people have been flippant, rude, they have lied, delayed, found me
“harmless” and “inconsequential.”

Teyana Taylor responded to Mykki Blanco, claiming, “ALL of it falls on Kanye [West] because he put Mykki on the song.” (West executive produced K.T.S.E. as the fifth release of his 2018 Wyoming albums.) Taylor added that she wanted to have dancer, choreographer, and Pose actor Dashaun Wesley on “WTP,” not Mykki Blanco. “I had no clue [Mykki Blanco] was on the song until they played it for me the day before my album release party,” Taylor wrote.

Following Taylor’s statement, Mykki Blanco wrote (in all capital letters), “I have two years worth of emails from your side literally ignoring my manager, ignoring my business manager/accountant, and ignoring my lawyer.” They added, “Teyana, don’t play me, this DOES NOT ALL FALL ON KANYE. Just own your side and move on.”

Ultimately, Taylor decided to join Mykki Blanco in urging fans not to stream “WTP.” She tweeted at Universal Music Group and Kanye West, “pay [Mykki Blanco] & keep me out of the drama. I don’t bother anybody. I’d like to continue my unproblematic life in peace.”

When contacted by Pitchfork, representatives for Mykki Blanco offered no comment. Pitchfork has also reached out to representatives for Teyana Taylor and Kanye West for comment and more information.
