Speculation abound that Migos' "T-Shirt" uses a slowed down sample of Dem Franchise Boyz's "White Tee."
"T-Shirt," arguably one of the best songs on Migos' new album Culture, came under fire Sunday. A video surfaced on Twitter comparing the track to Dem Fanchise Boyz's "White Tee." According to the video comparison, the theory is that the beat on "T-Shirt" uses a slowed down sample of DFB's "White Tee." The track's producers, Nard & B, denied any sampling, saying that it was "all vibe." Take a listen and judge for yourself.
Wait so Migos "T-Shirt" beat is Franchise Boyz "White Tee" slowed down? My mind is blown. So many layers. Brilliant. pic.twitter.com/WQfxS0nXEa— Andrew Barber (@fakeshoredrive) January 30, 2017
We did **(not)** sample "White Tee".. or any song for that matter. All vibe 🤘🏾 #TrenchWerk— Nard & B (@Nard_and_B) January 30, 2017
Though we would like to take credit for the genius.. Migos "T-Shirt" does **(not)** contain or reference any sample.— Nard & B (@Nard_and_B) January 30, 2017
It later came to light that the video, made by Craig The DJ, is a complete fake. It still amazing in this day an age that an entire rap album uses no sampling at all. Culture dropped last Friday and shot up the charts, currently battling for the number one spot. Watch the video for "T-Shirt" below.
