Dave East Resolves Stolen Design Issue With The Graphic Artist

It's all about the Benjamins.

Dave East found himself in a bit of controversy after a graphic artist accused the KARMA artist of theft of a design.

St. Louis-based artist Rell Brodie said This was the sale of the goods with the design of some works of art that he gave to the Nas protected as a gift.

"Damn @DaveEast team stole my design and put it on a t-shirt instead of just simply get in touch with me," Rell tweeted on Tuesday (2 January). "After I designed I went to the fair and gave it to him personally with all of my contact information.. that is not solid smh.

The artist later posted a video of him carrying the work of art in This concert. He also expressed his frustration with the people who defended the Harlem-repping MC and point out how the design is used without your consent.

"I gave that man that portrait of you personally, Leave the lid on to that man," he continued. "I have it on video of him accepting the job. They used my design for profit without my permission, that is stealing. Get the fuck outta here. It was not just internet shit."
