Audio: Copywrite - Poorly Promote This



Too much to explain:

After over a year of trying to work with Mighty Mi to take T.H.E. High Exhaulted off of I tunes and getting no where, Copywrite has finally erupted. Copywrite had approached Milo over a year ago about wanting to re-release his debut album since there was never a formal contract between the two he felt there would be no issue. Milo however felt differently and would not give Copywrite permission to include a couple of the tracks that Milo had done production for on the re-release. Copywrite accepted that but insisted that T.H.E High Exhaulted be taken down off of I Tunes and anywhere else Milo might have it for sale. A year later Milo still has not done this. "Poorly Promote This" was born out of Copywrite's frustration with how Milo and Eon handled the promotion of his first record and the recent chatter that has been heard about him re-releasing his classic debut.

T.H.E. High Exhaulted - 8th Anniversary Edition is out now.
