DJ Mustard Blasts Jidenna and Iggy Azalea for Ripping Off His Sound
Newcomer Jidenna's “Classic Man” is one of the hottest songs of the summer, but not everyone is feeling the classy club banger. Hitmaker DJ Mustard blasted the Wondaland artist as well as Iggy Azalea for copying his sound.
In a series of tweets (which have now been deleted), Mustard wondered why the producers of “Fancy” are suing Jidenna over “Classic Man” when both of the songs mimic his sound.
“Fancy was a rip off...Classic mans a rip off… str8 up!” he tweeted. “The moral of the story is I haven’t sued nobody YET. That’s like a n---- stealing a bike and selling it back.”
There are no reports that support Mustard’s claims that Iggy Azalea’s team are suing Janelle Monae’s Wondaland label over “Classic Man.” However, during an interview with Hot 97’s Ebro in the Morning, Jidenna revealed that he did file the right paperwork prior to avoid any litigation from producers who think they may have sampled "Fancy" in the song. For the record, they did not.
What do you think? Are "Classic Man" and "Fancy" a rip-off of DJ Mustard's sound? Tell us in the comments below.
