Try to ignore that epic Vince Staples clapback. It’s from three years ago. 🤣
Anyways… the official cease and desist followed a few hours later.
As of press time (I like that phrase because it makes me sound like a serious writer), the offending merch item is still the first listing in Playboi Carti’s online store.
This is hardly the first incident where a hip hop artist co-opts content from the metal world. Remember when a Soundcloud rapper jacked some Cattle Decapitation artwork?
