After people point out that DJ Dahi's "Adoration Of The Magi" beat for Lupe Fiasco was used in a 2012 song by GrandeMarshall, the rappers engage in a back-and-forth on Twitter.

This morning, Lupe Fiasco dropped off a new track from Tetsuo & Youth, the DJ Dahi-produced "Adoration Of The Magi." Soon enough, someone on Twitter pointed out that the song's beat was almost identical to the one Dahi used on Philadelphia rapper GrandeMarshall's 2012 track "Ellie Fox." One thing quickly led to another, and Lupe and Grande ended up in a Twitter sparring match for the better part of the day. Funnily enough, they weren't even arguing over the beat for the most part. 

First off, Grande responded to the user who pointed out the similarities:

Then, he shared a picture that Lupe had tweeted a few days ago, which Lupe interpreted as a "sneak diss":

It appears that Lupe was more upset about Grande's questioning of his Muslim faith.

The conversation went on like this for some time, concluding with Lupe saying it's all love between him and Dahi.
