The Virginia rapper thinks Drake jacked his song.

D.R.A.M. Says Drake's "Hotline Bling" Rips-Off "Cha Cha"

That could only mean one thing.

All year long, Drake’s been a target for stealing. Nicki Minaj’s boyfriend Meek Mill claimed the Toronto rapper doesn’t write his own material, which lead to a months-long feud between the two. Several diss tracks and mixtapes later, Drake debuted his near chart topping hit single “Hotline Bling” which finally received a proper music video on Monday (Oct. 19). Drake dorkishly bopped around in the video, and all felt right. That is, until rapper D.R.A.M. went on Twitter after his show in Drake’s hometown as part of Chance, the Rapper’s “Family Matters” tour and blasted the singer for stealing the sound on “Hotline Bling” from his song “Cha Cha.”

He’s not the only one. When “Hotline Bling” first appeared, Beats 1 mistakenly tweeted: “New @Drake on that “Cha Cha” remix.” Oops.

D.R.A.M. posted on Twitter:

Erykah Badu, who crafted a remix of the song, chimed in:
