In a Interview with Mikey T the Movie Star, Yung Berg claims Kanye West stole the beat for one of Kanye West’s biggest hit “Jesus Walks.” Berg says that the song was on a demo that he put together as a teenager.
I played Rodney [Jerkins} a lot of my records and the “Jesus Walks” beat is the same song I recorded just maybe the bass is amped up a little bit,” Yung Berg recalled. “I remember when I played [Rodney] the track and he fell asleep to Jesus Walks and they used it.
I was on my Iceberg flow, on some crazy sh*t,” Yung Berg continued. “Like here I am going hard on my demo at 16-years-old and they take it and win a Grammy, congrats because it’s all a part of my story.
Could be true, but the real question is do we care?
