Childish Gambino Sued Over Hit Song, This is America

A rapper, Kidd Wes has filed a lawsuit against Danny Glover aka Childish Gambino over his hit song, ‘This is America.’

TMZ reports that Emelike Nwosuocha aka Kids Wes is accusing the actor and rapper of allegedly stealing his 2018 GRAMMY award-winning record from him.

Kidd Wes filed a lawsuit against Childish Gambino, claiming he ripped off his song, ‘Made in America.’

Kidd revealed he dropped his song on SoundCloud in September 2016 and a few months later uploaded the song on YouTube. He then took the necessary steps to register the song with the U.S Copyright Office the following year in May 2017, as he prepared for it to be the lead single on his upcoming album.

Court documents state that Kidd is also suing Roc Nation and Young Thug whose vocals are in the background of the song.

He is claiming that the hook of ‘This Is America’ is “unmistakably substantially similar, if not practically identical” to his song ‘Made in America.’

He also claims that Childish Gambino’s “flow” is similar to his and points to key lyrics in the songs. The lyrics in Kidd’s song ‘Made in America’ state, ”Flex on the radio, Made me a terrorist, Pessimistic n***as, You should just cherish this.” Compared to Childish Gambino’s song lyrics, “This is America Guns in my area, I got the strap, I gotta carry ’em.”
