blame it on Meka February 27, 2012

Sitting down with The Well Versed, Copy opened up on the whereabouts of his crew, almost signing to Fort Knox and more.

TWV: In the early-2000’s you were in the Roc The Mic emcee battle. Did anybody approach you about signing with a major label?
Copywrite: Yeah, I’ve had my ups and downs. Just Blaze wanted to sign me, and my manager at that time, which was Cee High, Jay-Z’s cousin, he was managing J-Dilla. He manages Memphis Bleek and certain, random people, but he was trying to sign me but I wasn’t trying to sign because managers are pretty much a joke unless you have… I don’t know man, there were a lot of people coming at me at that period of my life because they thought I was going to be the new white boy; the new white boy rapper.
There were other labels also that were trying to get me signed but I couldn’t do it. Through the course of my career, if you want to call what I do a career, there’s a lot of people that almost tried to sign and they all fell through. I praise God for that, I’m really happy. You know, getting a major deal can suck. You know, it’s not dope. Even if you want to be rich, it’s not dope; it’s not good for anything. All the times that the majors came knocking, it was flattering but I didn’t want to roll with it.
