A lot of people accuse hip-hop artists of stealing their best music. You can’t get through a rap song nowadays without hearing bits and snippets of other popular songs that have been “sampled” in.
What most people don’t understand, however, is that those original artists probably “sampled” their songs from someone else who’s not necessarily as famous as them, and on and on in an eternal circle of “legitimate” theft.
This is the story of LA based Hip-Hop artist Milan, who ended up losing one of his creations to a very famous artist: Kendrick Lamar.
His debut single titled “Ridin Rollercoaster” was stolen by his friends and producers at T.H.C, and given to Kendrick Lamar who obviously copied the infectious psychedelic melody and used it in his song “M.A.A.D.
City Feat (MC Eiht)”, released in 2012. Milan’s unique delivery is what sets him apart from his peers but his backstory has been a focal point of his career – for better or for worse. IN this track, the rapper delivers an introspective track about the obstacles he’s had to overcome in the streets and the rollercoaster that he experiences now even though he’s focused on his career more than anything else,
