DJ Mustard Elaborates On "Fancy" & "Classic Man" Comments
A few days ago, DJ Mustard stated what was already obvious to many people: Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" and Jidenna's "Classic Man" sound like complete "rip offs" of his style.

DJ Mustard Calls "Fancy" & "Classic Man" "Rip Offs" Of His Sound
Over the past two years, DJ Mustard certainly hasn't been hurting for hits, with hip hop stations on both coasts continuing to blast his ratchet, slightly hyphy-inspired tunes, regardless of whoever's singing or rapping on them.

All this and more on this week's edition of 140 Bars.
Iggy Azalea Confirms She Gets Sample Money From Jidenna's "Classic Man"
"Classic Man" is yet another radio hit that owes something to DJ Mustard's chunky bass riffs, but unfortunately, it's not Dijon who'll be getting a check out of it. You may recall a similarly-borrowing single from last year, Iggy Azalea's "Fancy," and it turns out, Jidenna's hit is a direct sample of the song. Azalea confirmed as much on Twitter, revealing that (as is standard procedure) she gets a percentage of the song's earnings.

Iggy Azalea Shades Britney Spears Over Lacklustre "Pretty Girls" Single

The song was pretty horrible, even our audience gave it a "NOT FEELING IT" rating (only thing worse is "MAKE IT STOP").
