Hamad responded quickly by tweeting “That’s cap.”
Rumors regarding Durk and Cole’s payment apparently began when Raphouse TV posted on their Twitter page that Durk paid Cole $978,000 per verse at an alleged rate of $2,000 per word – however Hamad has since disproved this rumor in a tweet posted by Hamad himself.
“All My Life” is Durk’s new single from “Almost Healed” that has received critical acclaim both from critics and fans, often being touted as one of the year’s best collaborations.
No one knows for certain why the rumor about Cole’s verse price tag began; perhaps people were simply taken aback that Cole would collaborate with Durk, who is known for more street-oriented music.
No matter the source of the speculation, Hamad’s tweet put an end to it. It’s clear now that Cole didn’t charge Durk nearly $1 million for his verse and that they are simply friends who wanted to collaborate on creating an amazing track.
