Did Childish Gambino Steal "This is America"?

posted by Angela -

Childish Gambino is accused of stealing "This Is America" from a song called "American Pharaoh" that dropped in 2016 that also has a similar message and, to many, a similar sound. Gambino's manager, Fam Rothstein, piped up on Monday, saying "This Is America" actually dates back to three years ago, and has the Pro Tools proof. 

Jase Harley, the guy behind "American Pharaoh" is staying humble and says the controversy shouldn't "dilute the message me and @childishgambino are trying to convey ... about injustices we've encountered."
