In May, Childish Gambino dropped his controversial single “This Is America”. Now, some people are pointing out similarities between the track and a New york rapper’s 2016 song “American Pharaoh”.

The NYC rapper said he is happy to have potentially served as inspiration for the record, but noted that “a shout out would be cool.”

One of his collaborators has denied it and says that this song is 3 years old and he has the Pro Tools files to prove it.
