Did Tekashi 6ix9ine Rip Off K-Pop Group WINNER?

Tekashi 6ix9ine has come under fire yet again, this time for allegedly ripping off a K-Pop group.

All K-Pop, a website dedicated to Korean pop music, noted 6ix9ine’s recently released “Nobody (Closer)” bears more than a passing resemblance to WINNER’s song “Island,” which was released last August.

6ix9ine reportedly uploaded the song on Instagram in celebration of DJ Akademiks’ birthday, which prompted criticism from K-Pop fans who recognized the instrumental. The polarizing rapper eventually deleted the post, but “Nobody” remains on YouTube. Comments on the upload continue to chastise 6ix9ine for biting WINNER’s work.
