But immediately after award of the rap artist Jase Harley Glover was accused of plagiarism. According to him, the similarity of the tracks This is America and American Pharaoh he told the artist last year, but he did not respond.

I’m glad the black guy managed to get, but for our culture in General is a bad thing: he received a prestigious award for the song, which is indistinguishable from a stranger. I don’t care the prize, even if he just acknowledges that he heard my song,
