Juicy J has walked back his original sentiments hours after blasting Columbia Records with the aptly titled “Fuck Columbia Records” diss track.
On Saturday (February 29), the Three 6 Mafia vet posted an Instagram post that read simply, “Spoke to @columbiarecords. We are all good!”
But that tune is entirely different from the one Juicy J was singing early Saturday morning. Not only did he insist the label “treated him like backwash, but” he also singled out Columbia’s Chairman and CEO, Ron Perry, and EVP and co-head of A&R, Imran Majid on one of his Instagram Stories, telling his followers “DON’T SIGN WITH THESE PEOPLE. F-K EM!
The track’s single art featured a photo of Prince with “SLAVE” written on his cheek, while the song itself featured audio from Prince’s speech at the 2000 Soul Train Awards.
“As long as you’re signed to a contract, you’re going to take a minority share of the winnings,” Prince said at the time. “A select few of us will do well. The majority will not.”
Although Juicy J removed all evidence of the song on Twitter and SoundCloud, a snippet can still be heard here.
