Mykki Blanco calls out Teyana Taylor/UMG for not paying for the feature on "WTP"

Note: Mykki Blanco uses they/them* pronouns



In a since deleted instagram caption, Mykki Blanco asked fans not stream WTP after not being paid the feature fee, after two years of emails back and forth with Teyana Taylor's team and UMG


Teyana asks to be excluded from this narrative and directs the blame to Kanye West/UMG, misgendering Mykki in the process



The song and video pay tribute to the NYC ballroom scene, and the video features many ballroom/vogue legends. Mykki Blanco alleges their presence in the video was minimized due to their open HIV positive status



There's further back and forth between the two (see their twitters for the nitty gritty) before Mykki confirms they received payment, 24 hours after their initial call out
