    What's good guys, Arshan here from the Kids Take Over YouTube channel. So i’ve been seeing a bunch of threads from upcoming artists complaining that they got scammed by big rappers like The Game, Fetty Wap, Benny The Butcher, Dave East, Calboy, Fat Joe, etc…

    I decided to do some digging and get to the bottom of this scam, since literally NOBODY in mainstream media has made a video on it. I found out that it’s not really the fault of the big rappers here -- there’s actually this big company named “DaBlock365” who are using these somewhat washed up rappers, to ask young upcoming rappers to pay $500 to be on their next mixtape. Here’s the catch though, these mixtapes aren’t affiliated with the big artists themselves at all. They aren’t on any of the tracks. The mixtapes are just all the songs of people who paid their $500, and there’s like 40+ songs on each mixtape, which all get less than 50 plays… If you go on DaBlock’s SoundCloud page, they have over 6,000 tracks in just the span of 3 months. If you do the math, they made over 3 million dollars from this already..

    The thing is, it’s really not illegal what they’re doing, but It really doesn’t benefit the small artists at all, and of course you would be excited if someone like Dave East hit you up saying he wants to work with you for $500. I actually called up one of the kids who got scammed, and got them in this video to share their experience too, and it turns out that after you get scammed once, it just turns into a never ending cycle of them trying to lure more money out of you. Been working on this for a month now but hopefully a lot of young artists see it and don’t get fooled out their money anymore. Thoughts?

  • The artist usually does a drop on the intro of the tape or some s*** like that, ive seen jim jones and juelz post it on their personal igS but yeah, a very big scam and the artist "hosting" prob wont even hear ur song

    Smhhh. Hopefully Fetty didn't actually know about it and it was just his management team or some s***.

    yea, I mean who knows though. I feel like some of them didn't even know about the scam while their team agreed to it.

    Benny out here scamming niggas

    He actually just addressed it on the No Jumper podcast. He justified it being okay because he apparently used to pay to perform at shows and be on other people's mixtapes too.

    I saw that No Jumper interview and this isnt the same.

    What Benny did was paying dues.

    This mixtape scheme is just a waste of money.
