Childish Gambino Accused Of Copying This Is America From Jase Harley
Donald Glover AKA Childish Gambino who did the song This Is America, was hailed for the video and his strong lyrics. However, he has been accused of plagiarism – copying Jase Harley’s track American Pharaoh from 2016.
Despite this, Harley isn’t taking it personal. He took to social media to tell the critics he was ‘extremely humbled’ by the comparison. He also made it clear that people should not let the controversy ‘dilute’ the artists’ messages about injustice and corruption. He wrote:
“I feel extremely humbled to be recognized and labeled as one or the original inspirations for one of the most important pieces of music and visual art of our time.
I appreciate all the love and support! But PLEASE DON’T let this controversy dilute the message me and @childishgambino are trying to convey. We are speaking about injustices we’ve encountered and he’s helped to provide a platform for all our voices to be heard. Let’s not discredit him for that! The focus should be on affecting change in our communities and building equality. This is bigger than me and him and bigger than music. Let’s not lose focus.”
Harley’s message was rounded out with an insightful tag that read:
