A fan asked Casey Rain on Twitter about We Be Ballin' and he said the following things.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Definitely not Estate sanctioned. Just some dudes who looped up the beat and hook from the original MJ/Shaq/Ice Cube song, kicked their own verses on top and distributed to streaming despite not being copyright owners (which is trivially easy to do in this day and age). <a href="https://t.co/XRb4e5uWs4">https://t.co/XRb4e5uWs4</a></p>&mdash; casey rain aka s-endz (@CaseyRain) <a href="https://twitter.com/CaseyRain/status/1390781338261803014?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">May 7, 2021</a></blockquote> <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

You have to read the whole tread to understand it.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Anyone could do it. You could do it. I could do it. Right now. I could find an unreleased MJ song on my hard drive, sign up to a digital distributor, tick a box that says &quot;I confirm I am the copyright holder&quot; and it&#39;d be up on streaming services within days.</p>&mdash; casey rain aka s-endz (@CaseyRain) <a href="https://twitter.com/CaseyRain/status/1390785157091708928?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">May 7, 2021</a></blockquote> <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

This prick (AloneStar) is taking down "We Be Ballin'" (not his version, but the original ones with Ice Cube) from YouTube (I got takedown notifications and one strike from this prick, like he did the original song, f*ck him).

I bet that he heard the leaked versions, sampled them and made his song, as he claimed that he has the original contract agreement for this song (sounds like BS for me, I don't think Estate would have agreed with an anonymous not-so-talented rapper like him :laughingv6:)

I bet the "MJ" logo on the cover is used without permission.

Some not so smooth criminal again. Such a cheap illegal cash-in attempt will only be getting him the attention of certain lawyers.

And having huge balls to claim videos on YouTube for copyright, like it's 100 % his own song. ??

How do you know that they "claimed" a video on YouTube? Not sure what you mean actually.

When a video gets taken down or gets a copyright strike it tells you who claims the rights/requested the strike or takedown of the video.

If you're the channel owner I think. Yeah I know that but which video did they claim? Did they claims videos of the original versions of We Be Ballin or something?

I got an email from Spotify telling me about this song, I guess nobody checked to see if this was allowed!
