https://www.bbc.com/news/newsbeat-49161916 im guessing that jury have about roughly ZERO knowledge of rap music what a mockery of a court room. what complete and utter bollocks i notice the start of Dark Horse reminds me of a small part of a Taylor Swift song i might try and find it tomorrow and post it, its about 2 sentences of mid range tempo melody , maybe 20 seconds or so of a type of melody i listened to the Joyful Noise by Flame and it is a very generic copy of about 3 specific types of rap put together to a theme genre that ran for about 2 years as semi popular mainstream rap if i can be bothered, i might find them on youtube and post them showing it could easily be argued they copied other rap songs to make their own what they have is generic swearing dissing people rap main genre then they copy about 3 other rap songs and just edit in their temp and style making a rap song that has copied 3 other rap songs layering it on a generic rap style then adding swear words and bible words. i dont know either katy or the swearing christian teen rappers the court should be asking people like Jay-Z & Ice-T to offer professional opinions while its fresh in my mind... the Joyfulnoise have copied Snoop Dogs rap style also which is probably ok with him because he has made statements about his ideals around artists sharing and learning. i doubt he is cool with them trying to make false claims though. off the top of my head, i think there is 2 maybe 3 distinctive snoop dog songs that the joyfulnoise sound very very similar to.
