JAY-Z’s latest album 4:44 has become an inspiration for many people however it seems JAY-Z or his producer No I.D. was inspired for one the tracks by Modenine’s ‘My Skin Is Black’ a track off his ‘Paradigm Shift’ album.
Modenine pointed out the similarities between both tracks on his IG page upon noticing the similarities he quickly became a trending topic on Twitter.
As with every conversation about the 7 times Headies Lyricist on The Role winner, fans were divided between giving him props and accusing him of being bitter for not being relevant in today’s music scene.
No matter the side of the divide you fall, one thing that’s undeniable is that both songs sound eerily similar, same sample, same song structure, same subject matter.
It could be a coincidence or it could be that NO I.D. or JAY-Z or both had heard My Skin Is Black by Modo.
