Diplo Explains Why He Deleted "Bank Roll" Weeks Ago
Many assumed that Diplo’s deletion of “Bank Roll,” the hip hop track that the “Boy Oh Boy” producer dropped with Justin Bieber, Young Thug, and Rich The Kid on the bill as features was a reaction of embarrassment, the song criticized by a Twitter user as being one of the “worst songs” the tweeter had heard.
The producer offered no explanation for the song’s disappearance, until now. Today, Diplo uploaded a new version of the song to SoundCloud, with rapper Rich Chigga replacing Bieber’s verse on the track. Upon uploading the updated version, Diplo writes “Other artists made SoundCloud take down the Justin Bieber version because they had exclusives with him, you can find it online here tho,” hyperlinking a free download of the Bieber original to the post. Diplo did not clarify which artists/producers asked the music streaming platform to remove the song.
