Princess Nokia accused of beat theft after Ariana Grande call-out
Princess Nokia is now under fire for stealing the beat off her song "Mine," as well as a track from Colombian singer-songwriter Kali Uchis.
The claims are coming out only a few hours after the rapper called out Ariana Grande's "7 Rings" for ripping her off.
Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings” dropped yesterday, sending the internet into a frenzy. However, not all response was positive with many saying the song was way too similar to another track: Princess Nokia's "Mine."
The responses summoned the attention of Princess Nokia herself, who shared a video on Twitter where she calls out Grande on the songs’ similarities in both sound and context. "Mine" is off the rapper's 2017 release 1992 Deluxe.
“Hmm… Does that sound familiar to you? ‘Cause that sounds really familiar to me,” Princess Nokia says. “Oh my God. Ain’t that the little song I made about brown women and their hair? Hm, sounds about white.”
Many fans were quick to side with the rapper; however, now one producer is claiming she didn't own the beat in the first place.
Producer KRS took to Twitter to say Princess Nokia's producers stole the beat from a sample pack him and Oshi created. The rapper seems to have deleted her Twitter account after the callout.
