Caked Up Copy, Paste, And Call It Good

caked up copy paste rave police

Surprise, surprise, Caked Up is once again accused of dubious production practices. Just a few months ago, the duo was previously ousted for outright theft of a drop created by artist JACKAL on his song, Chinchilla.  Now, Caked Up appears to have moved on to the much more respectable method of copy-and-pasting stock loops for their forthcoming release, Rave Police.

Don’t believe it? Check out this video posted by Evix, as it provides some pretty clear-cut evidence of Caked Up’s behavior. However, the loop in question was taken from LoopMasters, and if it was purchased, it can be used completely legally. It may not be much of an example of artistic integrity, but the practice is technically acceptable.

While this behavior may be excusable for less prominent producers, is it passable when it comes from staples of the trap community? It certainly begs the question as to what sort of an example Caked Up sets for aspiring artists. But it’s not our place to judge—it’s yours. Considering you’re the audience, financial support, and ultimate critics of the group, let them know how you feel in our comments, via Facebook or Twitter.
