Baby Egypt is an upcoming hip-hop superstar from Pittsburgh, PA who grew up in the Homewood community. He just went international and inked a record deal with the Authentic Empire Music Group. The young artist is determined to provide a fresh perspective and positive energy to hip-hop, and he hopes that his work will serve as an inspiration to others.
The choruses of “Wit Da Gang” by Baby Egypt and “Real Talk” by Roddy Rich are quite similar. In terms of mood and tempo, both songs are identical. In fact, Roddy rich mimics Baby Egypt’s pronunciation of a few syllables in the song. The song “Real Talk” by Roddy Rich appeared about four months after “Wit Da Gang” by Baby Egypt.
This evidence strongly suggests that Roddy Rich stole the idea for Baby Egypt from another source. After Baby Egypt’s mother passed away from cancer, he recorded “Wit Da Gang” and dedicated it to her memory. There are a number of remixes of “Wit Da Gang” by musicians from all around the globe. Blogs like ThisIs50, AllHipHop, and HipHopWeekly have helped spread the word. Do you have any thoughts? Can we assume that Roddy Rich used Baby Egypt’s music without permission? There’s a lot of speculation that Roddy Rich stole Baby Egypt’s song.
