Macklemore "Borrows Inspiration" from Harlem’s Indie Rapper Nene Fresco

Artists inspire artists #facts. Artists “borrow” from other artists #SadFacts (when credit is not given). But when a major artist steals from a hard-working indie artist with no label budget who pays for all of his studio time and video productions out-of-pocket #NowThatSomeBullShit! Rapper Macklemore is known for his original and cool videos. Interestingly enough, Macklemore credits himself as the writer, director and producer of his latest visual “White Walls” however, after watching the music video “Torero” by Harlem’s indie rapper Nene Fresco, released exactly one year before Macklemore’s “White Walls”, it is hard not to wonder if Macklemore should have in fact credited Nene Fresco for his original idea. Of course, art is subjective, so we’ll let you be the judge…

Note: [Nene Fresco released the “Torero” music video exactly one year before Macklemore released “White Walls”. Torero was the single for Nene Fresco’s mixtape “Across The Border”]
