The ‘Last Revolutionary’ singer said he gave the Reggaeton artiste the weed to smoke and pass back to him but he took ownership of the blunt after lighting it.

“We played the show together. He stole my weed. He scammed me. He said we should share it. After rolling it, I gave it to him because he insisted he would light it but after lighting it, he chanced me. I asked him to pass it back but he said he doesn’t want to share anymore”.

Also speaking on their recent collaboration, he explained that he sent all the songs from his upcoming album and he chose to jump on ‘Dey’ which eventually became the lead single.
