Important Message

Recently, I learned that a track from one of my recordings was sampled and used without my permission in a rap music single with explicit lyrics, and that I was referred to by name as the "featured artist." Please know that I was never approached by the performer for my permission, and that if I were, I would not have given it for such a project. I am working on having all references to me removed. ~Mahealani
