With 48 million views on YouTube, “F.N.F. (Let’s Go)” is a megahit.
However, the song is also a harsh lesson on the business of music for rapper GloRilla.
HitKidd’s Beef With GloRilla
Trouble started when HitKidd released Tweets that implied the two didn’t agree on the song’s ownership.
He revealed that GloRilla had signed the song to the record label Collective Music Group without telling him.
HitKidd also wrote that he’d warned the rapper and her manager daily that record labels would try to sign her because of “F.N.F. (Let’s Go).”
He added that despite advising GloRilla to tell him when record labels reached out so they could be on the same page, she signed the song without his knowledge.
Since HitKidd had aired out his beef in public, GloRilla wouldn’t be left behind.
She responded that the producer had been hounding her since “F.N.F. (Let’s Go)” became a hit song.
According to the rapper, HitKidd made bank from the song while she didn’t earn one cent (except for concerts).
She added that she’s still making it big because she’s no one-hit wonder.
The rapper also pointed out how disappointed she was that the producer aired out his grievances on social media, but she still has love for him.
Furthermore, the rapper shut down HitKidd’s claims that she signed away the rights to the song.
She wrote that the producer signed away the song for $50,000 since he didn’t know how big it would become.
Making It Her Way
The rapper recently released a song with Cardi B, “Tomorrow 2.”
The song has already garnered 43 million YouTube views in less than a month and was used in 125,000 TikTok videos.
It’s unlikely that the rapper and HitKidd will work together again.
However, the rapper has already shown that she has what it takes to become a superstar; and teaming up with hitmakers like Cardi B has only improved her credibility.
By this time next year, I expect GloRilla to become one of the hottest new artists with a multi-platinum hit or two.
