Image Courtest Epic RecordsAs Jidenna‘s “Classic Man” continues to climb the charts, there’s another artist making a profit from the infectious tune: Iggy Azalea.
The rapper revealed on Twitter she gets a percentage of the profit every time Jidenna’s smash is played since the song is a sample of her 2014 track “Fancy,” which was produced by DJ Mustard.
After a fan noticed the songs are similar, Iggy confirmed that Jidenna was inspired by her song. “Thats true, i get a % of it,” she tweeted. According to Complex, Azalea is listed as a writer under her birth name, Amethyst Kelly, in the credits for “Classic Man.”
Iggy later noted that even she sampled from other artists on her debut alum, The New Classic.
