Flo Rida’s latest single ‘Can’t Believe It’: samples Infinity Ink’s ‘Infinity,’ pulls video inspiration from Diplo
In the latest example of rappers turning to dance music for catchy bass lines, Flo Rida and Pitbull have taken it upon themselves to (legally) obtain the very recognizable core of Infinity Ink’s smash underground hit “Infinity” from last year. It’s not much better than the Arty/Mat Zo – Will.i.am fiasco with the “Rebound” sample, but at the very least the rapper got permission to use the sample from Infinity Ink’s management, as Mixmag reports. See the video below.
Turns out Diplo isn’t too happy about this video either, claiming it’s a blatant rip off of “Butter’s Theme”:
yo @official_flo ur a fuck ass fuckboi for ripping off my video
