Thanks to a ridiculously large and loyal social media following, CAKED UP has become one of the year’s breakout acts in dance music. Along with performing alongside some of the industry’s biggest names, Oscar Wylde and Vegas Banger have also put out some solid tunes. Unfortunately, their integrity is now being questioned, as a couple of their tracks are strikingly similar to ones previously released by their fellow producers.
Just last week, the duo released what they called ‘a bootleg’ of ‘CoCo’ by O.T. Genasis. Although they gave credit to the rapper, CAKED UP forgot to mention that the edit also featured Jackal‘s ‘Chinchilla’ until they were accused of stealing by G Jones. Ultimately, Wylde ended up stating that it was just a bootleg made for their sets and that he enjoys the tune.

Now, the guys have come under fire yet again due to their remix of Rae Sremmurd’s “No Type”. CAKED UP posted the track earlier in the week and the resemblance to LOUDPVCK & gLAdiator‘s ‘Tony’ is hard to ignore. It’s also worth mentioning that the drop is almost identical to one that was featured in a sample pack after ‘Tony’ was released. These files can be used by anyone, but it is often a sign of laziness and unoriginality. While we’ll let you listen to the evidence below and decide for yourselves, we believe that CAKED UP has some explaining to do.
