Flying Lotus took to Twitter this afternoon to talk about rappers who do not pay producers fairly. "To producers," he tweeted, "when a rapper invites u to the studio and asks u to make beats on the spot. Tell them to pay your fee on the spot, cuz fuck that." He continued: "Hella rap artists are rape artists. Taking advantage of abilities thinking its a good look for us! Most my people behind the scenes is broke."
