MC Breed’s Widow Suing the Flint Rapper
The widow of late rapper MC Breed is suing young Flint emcee Jon Connor over a tribute track that samples Breed’s 1991 classic “Ain’t No Future in Your Frontin’.” MC Breed was the first rapper from Flint to gain national attention, but once Breed’s widow, Natasha, saw it was being sold on iTunes without having given her approval, she filed suit.
“It’s kind of ironic because the title of their song is ‘No Frontin’ and I need them cats to do just that, stop frontin’,” she said. “’Jon Connor who?’ I seen the whole campaign, I know who’s sponsoring the whole project, I know who’s behind him. I show Flint town love and everybody that knows me knows that I’m about straight up loyalty.”
. “Immediately when I heard it, I did not approve for several reasons. Here you have a song that’s a 24-year-old classic hit. This song paved the way for the Midwest, period. Put Flint on the map, Michigan on the map, opened up the gates for everybody on that end of the map,” she continued. “You just can’t take and say whatever you want to do with anybody’s material, number one. Some stuff that can’t be touched.”
