A rapper by Filero says SPM stole his stuff/hustled him
I felt really shitty after reading this [interview]
I don’t want to think I’m bumping SPM and I’m listening to this chump.
I guess it could be asked in many ways but I don’t just want an answer, I’d rather SPM explain his side of the story. Is what Filero claims about doing a big percentage including 80% of “Hustle Town” true?? Man, I hope this is answered because it just changed a lot.
Filero raps one verse, that I helped him write, on the song “Hustle Town.” He says something about his father dying at the park when he was seven years old. So whenever you hear that verse, that’s when you’ll be listening to this “chump”, as you call him.
Filero is not saying that he rapped 80% of “Hustle Town”, the dumb bitch is saying that he made 80% of the beats, which is a lie from the mouth of a fraud-ass nigga. Let me explain what happened.
My first album was “Hillwood”. A brother named Delwin “Mad Reel” Bell, who I love to death, made the beats for that album. One day Delwin took some time to show me a little on how beats were made. He let me add my own instrument to a song called “Comin Up Comin Down” on the “Hillwood” album. I played the instrument, using his keyboard, and Delwin recorded it into the song. He said “Damn, that sounds good.” And, honestly, that one instrument gave the beat a beauty it wouldn’t have otherwise had. I was inspired by my contribution to the song.
When it was time to work on my 2nd album, “Hustle Town”, I asked my brother, Tudy, to buy me a keyboard. I told him that I wanted to try to make my own beats. He bought me an ASR-88 which costed about $3,000 dollars. Filero knew how to operate that keyboard because he had an ASR-10 (the smaller version of an ASR-88) and he showed me how to use it. It wasn’t long after that I was making bad-ass music, I mean amazing melodies. These beats would eventually make up the music that would be “Hustle Town.”
Before I go on, let me explain what “drums” are: All you have to do is look at a drum set and that’s what drums are. You’ve got your kick drum, snare, symbols, high hats, congos, etc. Drums basically make sounds that go boom, bap, ding, pop, but drums can not make the melodies. The body of the beat is the melodies that you create with instruments. The keyboard has thousands of instruments you can use: different guitars, pianos, horns, violins, synth sounds, the selection is infinite. I made all the beats/music for “Hustle Town” except for a song called “Ghetto Imprisonment” done by a guy named Chief, and the core melody for “Block of Rock” was created by my homeboy Jose DeLeon. I took that core melody and added the bass line, the boom, the drums, but without Jose’s melody, the song would be nothing.
Here’s where Filero came in:
Filero is a monster at making drums but he couldn’t create a dope melody to save his momma’s life. He just doesn’t have that talent. I decided to ask him to come over and re-do the drums on “Hustle Town.” So, that’s what he did, and he did a great job. He came in and erased my drums and created his own drums. On this interview, Filero told Rolando Rodriguez that I didn’t give him credit for what he did but on the “Hustle Town” credits it says that the drums were produced by Filero. Do you honestly believe that if Filero made beautiful songs like “Mary-Go-Round”, “Riddla on the Roof”, “Streets on Beats”, “Block of Rock”, “Wizard of Oz”, that I would fuck him over, give him a G and a bottle of Crown, then screw him out of his credits? Come on, man, I would be begging him to make more music for my next album.
If Filero had really made those songs then why did his brilliant talent just stop after “Hustle Town?” Why couldn’t he ever make another legendary song again? I went on to make brilliant music and I kept blowing the fuck up. Any decent beat Filero has ever made was always with a sample or a re-play of another song. All the songs on “Hustle Town” are original melodies.
It’s sad that Filero said all this dumb shit because the music doesn’t lie. He just showed the world what a fraud bitch he is. Listen to “Never Change”; I made 90% of those beats. Listen to “Reveille Park”; I made 90% of those beats. I’m not trying to brag because it’s God that gave me that gift, but where’s Filero’s beats? He was right there recording the whole “Reveille Park” album for me. If he made a classic album like “Hustle Town” then why is “Reveille Park” Filero-free? That dumb bitch knows he didn’t make “Hustle Town”.
What’s funny is this dude, Rolando Rodriguez, says, “After talking to Texas Latin rap pioneer, Filero, we got drowned with reality.” Please, weak nigga. What happened was two busted-ass hoes got together to gossip about a man, which is exactly what hoes do. Y’all ain’t doing shit so you talk about someone who accomplished something so that your little interview can be interesting. Afterwards, Filero got into his bucket and drove back to the bitch’s apartment who he’s living with.
And for the player who asked this question: Listen, homie, you can’t believe every broke-dick nigga that says something to get attention. These hoes are buying non-brand cereal and shopping at garage sales. These niggas eatin “Tony the Lion” frosted flakes and shit.
Well, I’m happy to answer your question, I’m just sad that you felt shitty after reading this fraud-ass interview. Filero said a lot of other outrageous shit so if you guys have any other questions I’ll be glad to expose his ass even more.
P.S. Here’s a few words to Filero since I know he’ll be reading this: what is you doing, nigga? You get on a hoe-ass newspaper lying like a dumbass? Then you say you punched me twice? Bitch, I backhanded you like a fucking prostitute because you broke my mom’s window. Of course you hit me back but I was driving on the freeway. You forgot to mention that, huh? You hit me one time and I laughed. I told you, “Nigga, when we get to my mom’s house I’m gonna beat your hoe ass.” We got there and you wouldn’t even pick up your hands, nigga.
What I look like beatin up a half-drunk bony bitch. Instead I told you to get somewhere and you got somewhere. Then you say Kid Frost punched you in the restroom and ran? Nigga, when Frost hit you, you dropped like a sack of potatoes and started shaking like you were having a seizure. Niggas had to carry you out of that bathroom. Lord Loco told me you got, like, 18 stitches on the inside of your mouth.
Come on, Filero, who you trying to fool, man? Who you trying to be? You weigh 120 pounds with cement boots on, nigga. You know I’ve got a very forgiving heart, and I’ve still got love for you, but it’s just sad that you got with this Rolando bitch and did this. You forty years old, nigga. You should be showing our kids how to be real instead of how to ride the next man’s dick.
