Say it isn't so! In an age where US like French Montana are jumping on official remixes with UK artist the artistic gap between these two great nations has never been so small, but is there a down side to this? Are US artists hearing UK tracks then treating the beats as fair gain?

Just over a week ago Genesis Elijah released a track 'Dear Kanye' produced by Brooklyn producer The Audible Doctor and it received quite a bit of attention from both sides of the pond.

A week later the great 50 Cent released a track called 'This Is Murder Not Music' over the exact same beat!!

Now we ain't saying 50 Cent stole the beat but 50 CENT STOLE THE BEAT!!

**UPDATE** 50 Cent did NOT steal the beat 

While The Audible Doctor has confirmed that he had no prior knowledge the beat was to be used by 50 Cent at the time of writing this no one in 50 Cent's camp was available for comment.

We're sure it was just a little misunderstanding but while we're here have a listen to both and decide how did a better job over this banging beat...

Genesis Elijah - Dear Kanye

I wasn't even gonna release this. I sent it to The Audible Doctor as was thinking he'd be like "Hmm yeah it' good but not great..." but he loved it. So here it is.

It's really not a diss track and I don't want people to take it as such. I also don't want people thinking that I think I'm in a position to give Kanye advise. This is just my opinion from the angle of a supporter.

I am under no illusion that Kanye will ever hear it but if anything this could be a message to my future self or anyone who may one day find themselves in a position of power or influence.

Malcolm X once said to a congregation "This is 'Love Teaching', I wouldn't tell you if I didn't love you". This is the way I feel. I'm just a fan who wants to see an artist I look up to reach his potential. That's all.

Please enjoy...
