Some netizens have speculated that Epik High's new song, "Born Hater," was criticizing their former entertainment label, Woollim Entertainment. However, Tablo cleared the air by stating that although a portion of his lyrics was talking about his departure from Woollim, it wasn't criticism.

When asked about this during an interview on October 30 with Kyunghan news, Tablo stated, "When I select words, I put meaning and intention in every word. Please interpret the line, 'fortune falling to draw infinite,' correctly.

When listening to that particular line mentioned above, netizens speculated that he was directing it towards Woollim saying that the label had neglected and sacrificed Epik High to put their focus on raising INFINITE. Back in 2010, when the TaJinYo incident was receiving a lot of attention, Tablo departed from Woollim Entertainment. 

Tablo continued, "It is saying that I fell to draw infinite, not I fell because of Infinite. I threw away my fortune willingly. When the TaJinYo incident started, it was when Infinite was just debuting and it was already widely known that I was one of Infinite's producers. I didn't want the young kids, who are not related to the situation, to be harmed because of me so I left the company on my own will.

The rapper also revealed that he is still on good terms with both the artists and the CEO of Woollim and stated that Nell's vocalist, Kim Jong Wan, had also featured on the track "AMOR FATI" from their new album, 'Shoebox.' 

He said, "At the time, it was really hard and I cried a lot to the point I didn't know what else to do. But now I think it's fortunate that we can look back and laugh about it together."
