Childish Gambino Wins Lawsuit After Kid Wes Accused Him Of Copying His Song ‘Made In America’

Donald Glover popularly known as Childish Gambino remains triumphant in his lawsuit over his song “This Is America.”

Glover, a.k.a. Childish Gambino is in celebration mode after a federal Manhattan judge dismissed the copyright infringement lawsuit filed against him.

A rapper by the name of Kidd Wes was suing Gambino, claiming that the chorus was “unmistakably substantially similar, if not practically identical,” to his song “Made In America.”

According to HypeBeast, the judge said, “[a] cursory comparison with the challenged composition reveals that the content of the choruses is entirely different and not substantially similar.”

In reaching that conclusion, Judge Marrero briefly explained how Nwosuocha’s lyrics were a “short, simple, self-aggrandizing proclamation,” while Glover’s song was about “what America means and how it is perceived.”

“More could be said on the ways these songs differ, but no more airtime is needed to resolve this case,” the judge wrote.

Released in 2018, “This Is America” spent two weeks atop the Hot 100 and eventually won record of the year and song of the year at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards.
