Swizz Beatz thinks so, and has evidence that Balenciaga borrowed the Ruff Ryders logo.

Balenciaga has yet to comment on the apparent thievery. (Although it's unclear if they are actually selling the shirt -- it could have just been a runway piece.)

When he's not protecting his brand, Swizz is getting ready for the next leg of his 20th anniversary Ruff Ryders tour.
