Music Twitter Beefs: Diplo v. Flo Rida
Diplo v. Flo Rida
Chart-topping rapper Flo Rida was in hot water with electronic dance music fans in early August after DJ/producer Diplo called him out for some inexcusable similarities between Flo's new music video and one of his own. "yo @official_flo ur a f--- ass f---boi for ripping off my video," Diplo (@diplo) tweeted. Later that day, his rage continued to escalate. The Grammy-nominated artist then tweeted a hilarious threat that got his fans involved: "im goin to go toilet paper the trees in front of flo-rida mansion if you want u can ride or die with me. also bring eggs."

Flo Rida appeared on NYC radio station Power 105 about a week later to deliver an lighthearted response to Diplo's tweets. "Honestly I never seen his video and I got news of this late last night. For the most part, where I'm from the only thing that I had a problem with is the 'f-boy,'" he said. "But then I said you know what, I don't have a problem 'cause the people that might be a fan of him that didn't know me, I gain new fans. I'm learning to love it."

Decide for yourself: does the music video for Flo Rida's "Can't Believe It" echo the vid for Diplo's "Butter's Theme?"
