Childish Gambino has been accused of completely stealing “This Is America” from Emelike Nwosuocha, a rapper who is known as Kidd Wes.
Kidd Wes claims that Gambino stole his song "Made in America", which was released two years prior to Gambino's No. 1 hit.
"According to Kidd Wes ... he created his track on SoundCloud in September 2016 and released it on YouTube a couple months later, where people could listen to it for free. He says he also registered the song with the U.S Copyright Office in May 2017, and it was set to be the lead single on his upcoming album.
As you likely know ... Gambino's "This is America" was released in 2018, became incredibly popular and went on to win Grammy for Record of the Year.
According to the docs ... Kidd Wes claims the chorus, or hook, of "This is America" is "unmistakably substantially similar, if not practically identical" to his "Made in America."
