Let’s play the blame game… Looks like Yeezy may have ruffled some feathers when making his 2010 masterpiece, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. According to REVOLT, one sample wasn’t cleared for “Blame Game.” They go on saying, “[the song] reinterprets the central melody from mysterious electronic auteur Aphex Twin’s “Avril 14th.” Richard James, best known as Aphex Twin, is pretty candid when it comes to what happened. Check out excerpts after the jump.

“Is it a sample? I actually don’t know what it ended up being in the end, I’m so slack. I know that he tried to f****** rip me off and claim that he’d written it, and they tried to get away with not paying. I was really helpful, and when they first sent it to me, I was like, ‘Oh, I can re-do that for you, if you like,’ because they’d sampled it really badly and time-stretched it and there was loads of artifacts. I was like, ‘I’ll just replay it for you at that speed if you want.’ And they totally didn’t even say ‘hello’ or ‘thanks,’ they just replied with, ‘It’s not yours, it’s ours, and we’re not even asking you any more.’ [Laughs]”
