Texas based rapper Just Brittany accuses Rihanna of stealing her song.
Rihanna recently dropped her new single ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’ to a lot of fanfare. In a tweet earlier this week however she was accused by rapper Just Brittany of stealing from her song 2014 song “Betta Have My Money” which hit Soundcloud nine months ago. The singer said the song was “jacked” by Rihanna in a since-deleted tweet.
The near identical ‘bitch betta have my money’ hook is undoubtedly the issue but it is an extremely prevalent phrase in HipHop culture, stemming from the Wayans brothers’ 1988 blaxploitation parody film by ‘I’m Gonna Git You Sucka’.
Somehow, we don’t expect Rihanna is too concerned, she’s off pulling elaborate pranks on TV show hosts for fun.
Have a listen to both songs below and make your own mind up though, does Just Brittany have a case?
