Busta Rhymes And Pharrell Accused Of Stealing New Song “Twerk It”

(AllHipHop News) Last week Busta Rhymes released his song “Twerk It” featuring and produced by Pharrell Williams. The only problem is that the song may have been stolen, according to burgeoning Miami rapper Monty $$.

The rapper, whose real name is Antonio Shelton, claims to have released his own version of the song and that Pharrell and Busta simply “copied it and put it out,” according to Monty $$’s statement to the Miami News Times.

“The drum patterns are the same. And then there is the hook: ‘Twerk it, twerk it, twerk it, twerk it.’ When I put out my song, nobody was saying it the way I was saying it.”

Monty $$ alleges he sent the original track to an unnamed friend who works for Pharrell and has taped phone conversations with the friend wherein he admits to his version of “Twerk It” being the basis for the Pharrell-produced version.

Monty $$ states he has attempted to contact Busta Rhymes via Twitter on numerous occasions to no avail. Pharrell has not released a statement on the matter.

    I hope somebody will give monty $$ some advice and tell him not to waste his $$ trying to sue.

  • Hard to believe either of them actually want credit for the song. Both versions were ear murder.

  • MrNoName2K

    doo doo as songs..

  • anemia716

    hmm nah, he’s basing his argument off of a BASIC drum pattern haha. that’s the only thing similar between the two. sorry man, but that’s not enough.

    but, either way you look at it, neither are that impressive.

    Welp thats what you get with friends.

  • Madstacks520

    No no no. their both trash.

  • I personally don’t like the song but I always say that independent artists have much more value that an already established artist, simply because most established artists are burnt out with nothing new to come up with besides from recycled, stolen or outdated music…..Once your signed to a label you will never be a new artist ever again.

  • Jeff Active Reynolds

    lmao i couldnt listen to more than 30 seconds of either one. straight garbage

    • RMfag

      Or gay garbage.

  • They sound nothing alike!

  • Twerk it is garbage. Busta is my favorite rapper but he’s fell off.

  • Lamar Star

    Even though both songs sound nothing alike it seems like Busta lost his originality when he cut his dreads off. He’s just doing enough to stay relevant these days
