Travis Scott's 'Antidote' has gone platinum three times.

But he's not eating like he should be off of it.

That's because he had to give up 50 percent of the song's composer share in order to clear the sample, the Leon Michels-produced 'All I Need,' which was performed by Lee Fields & The Expressions.

Eestbound, who produced 'Antidote', explains that the problem arose when Scott jumped the gun on releasing the song.

"It was kind of a weird process," said Eestbound. "When Travis Scott released the song on SoundCloud. We didn't even know. We didn't even get any paperwork or anything or an email saying he's going to release it. After he released it, it was kind of an issue because, you know, the people from the sample told Travis that they want 50% of the record because Travis didn't clear it at first. "It was actually generous that they gave us 50 percent because those people could easily said we want 75 percent and he would just have to take it."
On the other hand, if they had gone to Michels and Fields before they released the track, they would have probably negotiated a deal around 15 percent.

Clear those samples, kids.
