Not everybody is happy with Childish Gambino winning it bug at this year’s Grammy Awards. Namely the artist who claims his own tune was ripped off for Gambino to take home those statues … and his take is hotter than fish grease.
Up and coming rapper Jase Harley was in front of TMZ cameras Monday in NYC, and explained that he was upset with Mr. Glover walking away with 4 Grammys for his monster hit, This Is America — which took home Record of the Year among other top accolades during Sunday night’s award show.
Jase’s takes include feeling that Gambino set black culture back by not attending the show and speaking on behalf of the racial issues he raises in the song … and, perhaps most importantly, not acknowledging Jase as an inspiration.
This was a thing a few months back when the song first dropped — people accused Gambino of ripping Jase off, ’cause This Is America sounds a lot like Jase’s track, American Pharaoh.
At the time, Jase appeared to be taking the high road … even saying he was “extremely humbled” that his track might’ve served as an influence for Gambino.
That was then and this is now — and Jase makes a very controversial analogy which essentially calls Gambino a “house slave.”
