Quality Control Refutes Khia’s Claims That City Girls Didn’t Compensate Her For Sampling “My Neck, My Back”

“I suggest you reach out to your publisher regarding the clearance.”

Quality Control rap duo City Girls prominently sampled Khia’s 2002 hit, “My Neck, My Back,” on their 2017 song “Fuck Dat Nigga,” but Khia says she hasn’t seen a check yet. In a video posted to social media, Khia confronted Quality Control’s Pierre “Pee” Thomas about not receiving payment, but he pushed back and explained that it’s her own publisher that may be skimping her.

“Pee, you know I’m mad at you because you let those dirty-ass City Girls sample my shit, and you didn’t pay me while you act like you got so much muthafuckin' money, you ugly, fat-necked bitch,” she said. “If you was a real nigga, you would have called the queen to write for them dirty ugly ass City Girls.”

Pee responded by posting an email detailing the payment from Quality Control to Third Side (a sync licensing and copyright administration company) and Memory Lane (a music publishing company):

He accompanied the post with a letter of his own praising Khia for her “monumental track”:

Khia,
Thanks for listening to City Girls.
I just want to let you know we cleared “My Neck, My Back” with E1 who owns the master and Memory Lane and Third Side Music on the publishing.
I suggest you reach out to your publisher regarding the clearance. We have the agreements for the use and everyone was paid.
You definitely set the pace with your monumental track. Keep blasting the City Girls.

Khia has since deleted her post from Instagram.

“My Neck, My Back” dropped in 2002 as the lead single for Khia’s debut album, Thug Misses. It reached No. 42 on the Hot 100 chart, and helped her album go Gold. The song recently spawned another hit thanks to Saweetie, whose own breakout single, “ICY GRL,” uses the same beat.
