Filipino rapper Skusta Clee accused of plagiarizing BTS' 'Ddaeng'

USER CONTENT

ARMYs are expressing outrage on social media towards Skusta Clee, a Filipino rapper who is under fire for plagiarism issue in relation to one BTS song.

Last September 22, Skusta Clee featuring Flow-G, launched their single for a clothing line promotion 'Deym - 90's Gang'. After a week, several ARMYs heard the song and noticed some close resemblance to BTS Suga, RM and J-Hope's song Ddaeng which was releasedduring the 2018 BTS Festa, ending up to a conclusion that the rapper had stolen the beat from BTS and have caused backlash from the fans.

On Sunday, the rapper defended himself on Twitter, clarifying that nothing was stolen, he just borrowed Ddaeng's beat and vibe. Soon after the statement, he changed the privacy of his Twitter account to private, as well as deactivating his official Facebook page.

TRANS: Hey, we didn't copy that. We just adopted its beat and vibe.

Plagiarizing ddaeng and now they're defaming BTS for plagiarizing as well. Not to mention that instead of apologizing, they promote the clothing line and yes, their statements (skusta, flowG, flowG's gf) are different. Clowns confirmed!

It is like someone would take your phone in public place and then went "oh I just borrowed"...without asking XD
Giving credits means kind of asking in music industry..not taking into consideration copyright issues of course.
