- Rapper Cardi B recently released a new single, Up, to the excitement and joy of fans
- There have been claims however that Cardi’s beat and lyrics were a rip-off and belong to some other people
- The two rappers, Mir Pesos and Mir Fontane have taken to social media to show the plagiarism
American rapper Cardi B came back with a new song, Up, six months after dropping the hit Wap with Megan Thee stallion.
The song has been doing numbers and steadily climbing charts, but there are rumours flying around that she allegedly stole the song from two New Jersey rappers, Mir Pesos and Mir Fontane.
Mir Pesos and Mir Fontane claim that they worked together on a song called “Stuck” in August of 2020 and the similarities between their song and Cardi's are definitely there not only in the beat but also in the lyrics.
They took to Twitter to show the alleged plagiarism by posting side by side videos of the two songs.
"@iamcardib, we want my money!! @MirFontane."
In a reply to them, the mum of one stated that if she ever got inspiration from someone's song, she would not mind giving a percentage or paying a fee to the artiste.
She also noted that she had never heard of the rappers and she played the hook of her single on an Instagram live before their song dropped.
"Naaa I'm the type of person that avoids problems & court days. If I get inspired by a song I wouldn’t mind giving a percentage or couple of thousand but I never Hurd if this man. I’m glad while I was recording this song in August I was playing with the hook on this live."
