    There is so much. Going to LA ive met and worked with SO MANY talented artists that are unsigned because of hollywood bullshyt.,

    As soon as i get some money im starting a small label. Its so much talent out here, its sad.

    Your absoultely right. The checks from "This is America" could potentially feed him and his grandchildren. He better sue and get his fukking royalties and quit being a scared bytch.

    The history of music is filled with many broke geniuses. This guy is only playing himself.

    This album is amazing though.

    This is nothing like “made it a hot line”

    The themes, rhythm, and melodies are all similar.

    More like “your song didn’t make money, so it’s okay that I steal it and make money off it.” shyt’s wack.

    Wow.

    Yeah I mean there’s no way this wasn’t a blueprint for the final song.

    So true. A friend of a friend wrote who let the dogs out (goofy I know) but sued and won, and dude is eating very well from it. He got paid pretty incredibly well. I don’t know what music industry money is like these days but if you think you can prove someone jacked your shyt I’d try to do so.

    Clearly Donald used this song as an inspiration for This is America. But I never heard of the dude until now and now I'll check for him. The song is great. But stealing music is nothing new.
