Donald Glover's Manager Denies Glover Stole "This Is America"

By HHL JT

Yesterday, a post on Reddit's HipHopHeads suggested that Donald Glover swiped his Childish Gambino track "This Is America" from the song "American Pharaoh" by Jase Harley.

Harley also commented on the similarities between the two tracks in a series of Instagram comments.

"lol word a shout out would be cool 🤷🏾‍♂️ all good tho.. he’s a great artist, dope I could’ve had some influence on the record"

"I always felt my song inspired it lol from the first time I heard it"

"yeaaa lol it’s cool tho.. glad they liked my song. It’s all love"

"all artist get inspired by others.. artists being thirsty for bread is why ppl don’t wanna credit anyone for inspiration. It’s all love and support from me, glad if my record influenced his 🙏🏾"

This morning, Glover's management team fired back hard at the accusations. They say Glover couldn't have stolen from Harley because "This Is America" was conceived before March of 2016, which is when "American Pharaoh" dropped.

Check both tracks below and let us know what you think:
