Yee-zus! North West has been accused of ripping off fellow kid rapper, Zaza. Zaza’s parents took to social media today to accuse Kim and Kanye’s oldest daughter of stealing their daughter’s “creativity” by using the five-year-old’s ‘What I do?’ beat.
“In July of 2019, ZaZa and her dad went into the studio for the ultimate experience … To finally begin making the music she wanted to make,” the pint-sized rapper’s mom wrote on ZaZa’s official Instagram page. “We take PRIDE in creativity, and believe whether a child’s involved or an adult … creativity deserves RESPECT/homage,” the statement read.
“What @kimkardashian (Kanye West) are doing with their daughter … with the inspiration of ZaZa and our family in mind is okay,” ZaZa’s mom assured. “We’re not mad, BUT PLEASE SHOW LOVE AND SUPPORT TO THE ORIGINAL FIRST,” the young rapper’s mom requested.
“We admire Kanye west, and adore his journey,” the young star’s mom continued. “However, we don’t wanna feel like our daughter’s journey in the world of entertainment is being STIFLED.”
ZaZa’s parents made their statement in reference to North West’s closing act at her father’s Yeezy Season 8 Show during Paris Fashion Week. The beat and basic flow of North’s musical selection mirrored ZaZa’s ‘What I Do?’ single, which made its debut on YouTube last August.
Some fans noticed the similarities and called Kim Kardashian and Kanye West out on their failure to give proper attribution to ZaZa. Others did not notice the similarities.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have yet to respond to the backlash surrounding their daughter’s closing act at the Yeezy Season 8 Show during New York Fashion Week. Stay tuned for more celebrity kids’ news!
