Inspired by, an homage to, or just a blatant rip-off?

Ladies and Gentlemen allow me to present my case. It will only take about 8 minutes of your time.

Firstly listen to this; a classic hip-hop tune by one of the greatest female music producers of our time, Missy Elliott.

 

Now listen to this; a new tune by Angel Haze, a 21 year old rapper from Michigan who is currently causing a stir on the hip-hop scene.

 

 

Now do you understand the title of my post?

    1. Couldn’t see on that site if she sampled her and my point is not that she sampled Missy – it’s that she wholesale plagiarised Pass That Dutch! Was it intentional and with Missy’s blessing, or is Angel Haze being cheeky?
