Caked Up Steals BabeyDrew’s Vocal Acapella
Known for the unethical ways of producing “their” music, BabeyDrew has also been a victim of Caked Up’s questionable morals. His original “In The Air” was not only legally sampled for Diplo & Skrillex’s Jack U banger entitled “Jungle Bae”, but was illegally used for Caked Up’s track “Jon Snow”. “In The Air” is the result of Bunji Garlin, one of the biggest artists from the Caribbean, getting fused with EDM and Reggae.
