According to producer Menace, the man responsible for the instrumental of Desiigner’s breakout smash hit “Panda,” Future and Mike Dean both reportedly put separate claims on the song over copyright infringement and production credits, respectively.

Menace claims he has yet to receive a check for the profits made from the song, nor has he even met the G.O.O.D. Music rapper. He says the hold up is due to the claims that Future and Mike Dean have set on the song. “There was a situation with Future putting [an infringement] claim in because apparently, he said that ‘Panda’ sounded like ‘Fuck Up Some Commas.’ So we were just about to see the checks but there’s been a lot of delays so we won’t see anything until next year anyway,” Menace told DJ Booth in a new interview. Whereas, Mike Dean reportedly claimed that he changed something in the beat, entitling him to collect a percentage of any profits from the song, however Menace doesn’t believe him.

“Not only [Future], Mike Dean, Kanye West’s producer, he put a claim in as well saying that he did something to the beat and he never did,” Menace explained. “I don’t think we’ll see a check until probably next year. Right now, it’s just going through negotiations. The problem is that once someone puts a claim in, it just stops everything.”

XXL later reported that Future’s rep informed them the reports are NOT true, but Menace apparently believes otherwise. You can read the words yourself from Menace right here.
