POTTER PAYPER CLAIMS THAT DRAKE ignored his request to let him use the Lemon Pepper freestyle instrumental on Instagram.
After the track which featured Rick Ross was released earlier this year, it went on to become one of the biggest songs out at the time.
This led to a bunch of rappers including Potter, jumping on the beat to release their own versions of Lemon Pepper.
And the East Londoner’s rendition was one of the more successful ones, racking up over 5 million views on YouTube.

But as the 30-year-old doesn’t have any rights to the beat, to be able to monetise it, he would’ve had to of gotten clearance from either Drizzy and his team.
Which Potter thought wouldn’t be an issue, as they follow each other on Instagram.
So he proceeded to hit up the Canadian in the DM’s to ask if it’s possible for him to put out his own version, but to his surprise, Drake left him on read.
A frustrated PP broke down what happened on the Alhan & Poet Show, he said: “I wanted to do my Lemon Pepper freestyle, it’s got like 5/6 million views on the audio you get me.Embed from Getty Images
“But I couldn’t sell it, couldn’t make no money off of it because this multi-million/gazillionaire, wouldn’t answer his DM, and let me use the beat.”
However, Potter’s got a theory as to why Drake didn’t get back to him to clear the beat, he thinks it’s simply because he went harder than him on his own song.
The Barking native added Drake was probably thinking, “This guy’s trying to ask me to clear a track that he went harder than me on the beat.”
