Asem accused of stealing beat for “SOLID GROUND” album. A few weeks ago, Asem released his SOLID GROUND album and just when we thought everything was heading right for the punchline rapper, there is yet another controversy surrounding him.
Purp’man, a Ghanaian rapper based in Chicago, USA, who is currently working on his debut album is accusing Asem of stealing his beats which he (Purp’man) used for his song ‘Y U Bore’ [ Watch video on youtube, released several months ago before Asem’s album dropped.
After going behind the scenes for some time, Asem bounced back with the ‘Sold Ground’ album. It’s on this album that Purp’man’s beats was used for the track ‘Show Something’
May be the ground wasn’t solid enough. “He didn’t have any clearance from me when he was putting it on his album. I mean you can’t do that. You can’t put someone’s joint on your album and claim it’s yours,” Purp’man hinted.
Asked if he has made efforts contact Asem or his manager, he explained saying “I was tryna settle it amicably with him, but his reps think I’m stupid or something.
He stated that he’s on his way to Ghana and will walk straight to the court room to seek justice.”
