Complaint Review: Kevin Erondu
Kevin Erondu K.E on the Track "Ke on the Track" Scammed 30 Thousand Dollars from Me Internet
*Consumer Comment: Whats your contact?
*Consumer Comment: have you contacted a lawyer yet?
Supposedly "Ke on the Track" sold me 4 exclusive tracks.
He said that he could run me a deal and that he could get me major artist features with Future, 2 Chainz, and do a video and that he was getting singles off the mix tape and get it radio play because he is the producer and he can get better deals because he makes their beats instead of me being the third party trying to do it. It made sense so I said OK. I was sorta of hesitant because it sounded a little shaky but it still made sense. In the past I have had bad incidents with major artist and producers and I was being cautious to this situation as well.
I initially gave him 8 grand because that was the first deal. Then he said for 15 he can get it to radio and get 2 Chainz as well. So I said OK because even though he was little late he got a future verse on so I figured he was legit. Then he showed up with the 2 Chainz verse and I was in shock that he actually kept his word for the second time.
Then he said you want French Montana and I was like maybe, then he said well French said he'll do it for 3 grand but I gotta give him 5 beats but its cool.
So I had already bought quite a few tracks from another very well known Producer ( Purps) and said well then put French on this one then. Are you sure that you wanna use Purps beat instead of your own. He said "Its ok I still have the singles so no problem". Then I said "well if you gone master the tracks as part of the original deal then you might as well mix them". So he emailed the engineer said it will be 5 grand for 10-15 tracks. I said cool because I had no reason to doubt him at this point really because so far he had come on his word, (as I thought.)
Well here is the kicker my friend said he had saw some stuff on Ke ripping off other lower artist on their songs. As also on here and a few other websites and you tube postings. he was reselling the same beats and songs to multiple people. Well I looked it up did some research on it and I talked to Ke about it and he explained that the other artist had only leased the tracks and not fully bought exclusive rights to the tracks. And the main author had resigned on they statements on the Rip Off report so I took it as a legit story. Well when I looked yesterday my friend had said that he also saw something else that sounded like my track vocals with 2 chainz. And when I listened to it, It was correct.
Exact Same vocals and everything. http://youtu.be/aLR2B1B4KcM
thats the link....
and also a Bobby Valentino verse and song Take a Pic (I decided not to use the Track after I discovered this as well. )
Then when I asked him bout it again he was trying to say that somebody he brought from Baltimore (Logik) stole his tracks and vocals in his studio and he gone beat his a*s if he find out blah blah blah blah....
At this moment I realized and understood what was really happening with my tracks taking so long to get mixed and mastered.
10 tracks doesn't take almost 2 months to do. (From February 27th to April 11th.) He didn't have any intention of ever doing them and there probably isn't a mixing engineer either. Because I have had tracks done before and it hasn't taken that long to do them. plus I am always calling him and when I did get some tracks back they sounded horribly wavy and unmixed. You could tell that noone really did anything to them. And I'm like how does a mixing engineer who does this full time not know that this sounds fuqed up and unfinished.
Anybody especially a professional artist or serious artist can tell that they weren't mixed at all just by listening to them. I could have just let Patchwerk Studios completely mix and master the tracks at the studio if that was the case. I came to him since its was a one stop and shop and he could have embedded the songs and everything. Well we have paperwork signed and email agreements so that's legally binding and so is the emails and tried to have patience and I rather be nice bout it.
He eventually stopped talking to me once I brought up the fact of the 2 Chainz verse being used and then he stated the engineer is in town and I told him on several occasions that he could have simply called me for my opinion on the mixing with the engineer but every time I never received a call and I kept calling him and barely receiving answers since he received all of the money.
Now keep in mind that this is over the course since Feb 27th to get the tracks mixed and it is now April 11th....... And I had told him initially that we had a deadline of April 14th for mix tape release and he initially told me in it would only take 2 weeks. And every time he comes up late on his deadlines and never responds back unless I contact him.
Plus when I contacted him about it he act like he couldn't hardly talk he became busy and didn't respond back..... and as he slowly got his money he slowly stopped calling or keeping in contact as much.
After such I sent him and email and stated that I would rather just have my money back and not use any of the tracks or vocals since I can not trust the services to be legit since there have been 2 other instances of used verses. I have yet to get a response.
