Following the surprise release of two new tracks, ‘Gods Plan’ and ‘Diplomatic Immunity’ last Friday; Drake has been accused of stealing the associated artwork for EP, ‘Scary Hours’.
Revealed in an Instagram post from producer Rabit, it’s clear to see the resemblance between the visuals for ‘Scary Hours’ and Rabit’s 2015 Communion Tour poster. Designed by Rabit’s close collaborator Collin Fletcher, the producer included two images of the poster in his Instagram post, alongside Drake’s cover art for comparison.
“Today I wake up to see OVO has redone one of my tour posters designed by @collindfletcher for Drake’s new single. Poor Collin is always having his style stolen😬lol BUT I love being part of a team that’s so creative and iconic,”
Whether the artwork was indeed repurposed or not, it appears that Rabit isn’t too upset about it; as it can be assumed that his praise is aimed at the OVO camp.
Speaking exclusively to Pitchfork, Colin Fletcher commented: “This is a story that too many artists, musicians, and designers identify with. Hopefully this results in a larger conversation about popular culture’s relationship to underground artists.”
