Erykah Badu Calls Out Papoose For Using Old Vocals Without Her Consent
They say it’s better to ask forgiveness than permission, as is the case for rapper Papoose who allegedly used Erykah Badu’s vocals without a heads-up. A day after the Brooklyn-bred rapper dropped his 10-years-in-the-making LP Nacirema Dream, the neo-soulstress took to Twitter to call him out for using her old material from a decade ago on the song “Cure.”
This papoose song Cure.I sang those vocals 10 years ago. That’s 2 babies ago.Sheeeit.So mcs just throwing out old material- no paperwork..

This wouldn’t be the first time Badu has thrown shots on the social site. In June 2012, she came at Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips for leaking visuals without her consent.
