Miguel on Roscoe Dash’s Claims of Writing the “Lotus Flower Bomb” Hook

Here’s another side in the ongoing Roscoe Dash vs. Kanye and Wale “song credit” beef. As you know, Mr. Dash is heated over the lack of recognition for his work on G.O.O.D. Music’s “To The World” song and Wale’s “Flower Bomb.” Roscoe says he helped out on both tracks, specifically writing the hook for “Lotus Flower Bomb.” However, the man who can be heard singing the actual hook on the track, Miguel, has another side of the story to tell.

Miguel tells Complex:

“As far as I know, Wale and another artist that I recently met penned the original “Lotus Flower Bomb” chorus and I came in and added the second half or the end part…I’m not going to explain myself, this is retarded. I don’t know anything about Roscoe Dash. At the end of the day, I know my involvement in the song and as far as I know, Wale and I, and this other guy, wrote the chorus. The other guy was an alternative artist.

I think anyone that wants to know who wrote the song can check the credits. I don’t know, I don’t really care. If he did write part of it, then he should get credit for it. All I know is that I didn’t write my portion of the song with Wale in the room–he was in Atlanta, I was in New York. If anyone had any involvement prior to me being involved, that’s unbeknownst to me. Definitely if he wrote a part of it, he should get credit for it but as far as I know, the people who deserve credit on the song are listed. Twitter is definitely not the place to handle business per say. If he wanted to get that rectified, he would have his lawyer contact the proper people.
