Geoff Barrow Accuses Lil Pump Of Sampling Track Without Permission: "F*ck Off"
Geoff Barrow of Portishead claims Lil Pump borrowed from his music without his consent. He aired out his grievance via social media today. Barrow tweeted, “Who is Lil Pump? He’s used mine and [Ben Salisbury]’s Annihilation score in his deeply fucking sexist song [“Racks on Racks”]. Just so you know we didn’t give clearance.” Barrow later added, “As 2 fathers of daughters this shit needs to seriously f*ck off.”
In a statement sent to Pitchfork, Barrow officially confirmed that Pump sampled “The Alien” from the Annihilation (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) album. The problematic content of the Harverd Dropout's song is the focal point of his discontentment.
“We don’t expect any royalties and copyright infringement is not our issue. We want people to know that in no way have we granted the use of our music to be used on a track that is So terribly degrading to young woman. As fathers & firm supporters of the Me too movement We are amazed how tracks like this are not called out by the media for this reason. I know people will try and Call us out as old fuckers and the music ain’t for us and they would be right but misogamy is still Bullshit what ever age you are.”
