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
50 CENT - THIS IS MURDER NOT MUSIC
