It seems like Kanye West and Nas‘ collaboration on “Nasir” may not have been as original as we thought. The Architect, a Bay Area producer, recently came out with alleged proof that may show Ye and Nas ripping his cover and beat off.

The beat on the song “Adam and Eve” is similar to a free track The Architect had already shared on Bandcamp. His song, “No Idea’s Original,” was part of a remix project that dropped last October. To make it more evident, the track features Nas.

The cover art is quite similar too.
