The term Great Minds Think alike is one thrown around everynow and then. But sometimes the other part of that line is missed "Greater minds steal from those unknowng" . Case in point - In late 2009, Toronto artist Ohshawn and producer Xpress came up with a song entitled Sleep,Work No Tomorrow sampling Barry White's I'm Gonna Love You Just a Little More Baby. Fast foward to 2010 and Ohshawn released the track via iH8Monday's the last week in November. Now fast foward to December 24th,2010,Rick Ross reelases a mixtape Ashes to Ashes along with a track entitled "Even Deeper".Having a listen to that song and tell me they dont sound similar. Okay yes they sample the same song, but its almost as if the Ohshawn version was heard and then the idea of the song came for the Ross version. After all the download link was sent all around twitter by @CinematicDex to alot of artists i just find the timing a little close. Hmmm anyway its something to consider after all.... how will re really know.
