Boi-1da & Vinylz Call Out Foreign Teck For “Stealing” J. Cole’s “Deja Vu” Beat For Bryson Tiller’s “Exchange”


(AllHipHop News) Longtime production partners Boi-1da and Vinylz once again teamed up for “Deja Vu” off J. Cole’s new album 4 Your Eyez Only.

The track for “Deja Vu” resembles Bryson Tiller’s “Exchange.”

1da and Vinylz took issue with Foreign Teck of The Mekanics for creating a beat they claim was originally their work.

“Maybe [Foreign Teck] can explain why to y’all why [Bryson Tiller’s] ‘Exchange’ and ‘Deja Vu’ sound similar… right [Vinylz]?” Boi-1da posted on Twitter.

Teck responded with, “damn [Boi-1da] wake up everyday tryna come for me lmao i’m honored. at the end of the day you one of my favorite to ever do it man.”

The two producers exchanged more tweets, and Vinylz added his thoughts to the online conversation as well.

“Lol thief .. all good tho.. our run continues as always without stealing sh-t …we create not remake..,” tweeted Vinylz.

He added, “I sent this thief a video of me making the ‘Deja Vu’ beat..a week later he post a beat on ig with the same drums. I made him take it down. He said ‘I’m sorry bro.. I was inspired . I look up to you’ few months later he decides to remake the whole beat and give it to Bryson.”

Then Teck posted, “here’s how honest i am [Vinlyz] the drums off you know were definitely your drums i was 19yrs old and just really learning sh-t. ‘Exchange’ however [Vinlyz] i made myself and sent it to [Daniel Worthy] to finish. he got stuck on it and never sent it back.”

The Florida native then blasted Boi-1da and Vinylz for claiming to own certain sounds.
