Diddy dropped his new track alongside City Girls and Fabolous last week, titled "Act Bad." He called the track the "song of the summer" on his Instagram page, however, one up-and-coming Queens rapper, Swinderella, has other ideas. An associate of the artist, Emilee Grey, claims that Diddy's song copies Swinderella's 2020 song of the same name. Swinderella also took to her own Instagram page to chime in.

"The industry will really send people to bite your whole entire swagg!” Grey wrote. “You never know who watching you, they not creative enough, they’re not organic enough!” The associate went on to say that Swinderella "DID ACT BAD 2 YEARS AGO," adding, "DAMN you even stole the INTRO aesthetic." Grey continued, saying, "The industry will be nothing without the underdogs," and, "SWINDY YOU'RE NEXT."

Swinderella Associate Says "Act Bad" Came Out 2 Years Ago

Swinderella wrote on her Instagram story, “They keep telling me I need a hit whole time I got em and the billionaires stealing my whole shit." She's also gone on to share posts accusing Diddy of stealing her track various times. Diddy hasn't publicly responded to her claims at this time, and it appears as though no legal action has been taken.

Earlier this month, Danity Kane's Aubrey O'Day accused Diddy of stealing songs from the group and using them on his 2006 LP, Press Play. “Diddy took 3 songs from us and put them on his album,” she claimed on Twitter. She added, "His song with Christina [Aguilera]. His song with Nicole [Scherzinger] from [Pussycat Dolls], it’s still d woods voice saying it’s bad boy bitch in the beginning & after love w Keri Hilson. All of those we recorded.” O'Day also previously claimed that Diddy has "mismanaged artists & stolen their money his whole career (including Danity Kane)." When Diddy hinted at bringing back his series Making The Band on social media in 2019, she also shared her thoughts under his post. “You had making the band because of US!" she wrote, adding, "Dare you to bring the true STARS back and show you can FINISH WHAT YOU STARTED.”
