DJ Godfather on his first(ish) solo record, Detroit's ghettotech scene, and that ‘Godzilla’ sample

The crazy thing is that Big Sean sampled our “Godzilla” track for his latest album, Detroit 2. He did a song called “The Baddest.” And his manager hit me up to clear the sample from me. So I had to tell him that whole story I just told you, and I was trying to tell him, “Look, you could sample my version, because I know you and I'll clear it for you, but Toho owns the original Godzilla track, and they turned down a total of 80 grand.” So Jay Z’s attorneys got involved, and they wound up clearing the sample for six figures for Big Sean’s album.
