Azealia Banks’ Diplo-powered track “F*ck Up The Fun” has caused a heavy discussion among SoundCloud users. The famed producer was accused of stealing the beat from Dutch Bubblin’ beatsmith MasterD. It now appears, however, that the beat is a collaboration between the Mad Decent honcho and MasterD and includes a sample of the latter’s track “Mad Drumz.” Initially, the production credits went only to Diplo but has now been changed in order to highlight the collabo. Diplo contacted the good folks over at Pitchfork via email.
