808 Mafia’s Non Stop Da Hitman (Migos, Rich Gang, 2 Chainz) came on The Producergrind podcast to talk about his placement on Migos’ Culture II album. During his interview, Non Stop alleged that Cassius Jay had agreed to collab on the beats, however Cassius added his tag and passed the beats on to rappers without playing anything on them. Furthermore, when Migos released the producer roster for the album, non Stop’s name wasn’t on it.
Nonstop Da Hitman Calls Out Cassius Jay
This week Cassius Jay came on the Producergrind Podcast to respond to the allegations. Cassius explained that he often collaborates with producers and sometimes gets the opportunity to sell beats so fast that he doesn’t have time to play on them. That’s why he makes sure his tag gets on the beat and he tells young producers to always tag their beats. Cassius responded to Non Stop by saying that he told Non Stop about his process when their partnership began. Cassius felt that Non Stop was only speaking up now because he went uncredited for Culture II. It was never Cassius’ intent not to credit Non Stop but Cassius said that Migos’ business machine moves very quickly and he didn’t know about the error until he saw the list in his own IG feed.
Cassius Jay Responds to Nonstop Da Hitman’s Claims
Cassius says that if you hear his tag on a given beat and it’s paired with another producer’s tag, it possible that he may not have necessarily played anything that particular beat. As a result of this beef with Non Stop, Cassius says that he will be sticking with his tight circle of collaborators including Zaytoven and London On Da Track.

In the end it’s a lesson about communication and understanding where a producer is in his or her career path. Always tag your beats and know what the terms of the partnership are.
