Popular Twitch streamer Dimitri ‘GreekGodx’ Antonatos was left shocked after hearing BTS’ new ‘UGH!’ song, which seemingly featured a sample from his ‘GGX Gang’ song.
Korean pop group, BTS, are currently the biggest boy band in the world. With a combined social media following in excess of 40 million on Twitter and Instagram, it’s fair to say that they have taken the global pop scene by storm in recent years.
Despite being one of the most biggest streamers on the platform, GreekGod’s Twitch following of over 1 million is humbled by the Bangtan Boys’ gigantic following.
During his February 21 Twitch broadcast, Antonatos stumbled upon BTS’ new track called ‘UGH!’ from their brand-new album, ‘Map of the Soul: 7’ after being directed to it by a post on the GreekGodx subreddit.
After listening to the opening few seconds, the track seemingly sampled a part of what the 26-year-old presumed to be his voice from the fan-made ‘GGX Gang’ song.
“Are you f**king kidding?” Greek exclaimed. “I don’t know if that’s my voice,” he acknowledged while listening to the GGX Gang track.
However, after listening to the BTS track a couple more times, Antonatos appeared to be convinced that the voice was indeed his. “Mate! You f**king yoinked my voice, mate!” the Twitch streamer yelled while typing frantically in the YouTube comments.
*F**k off! Give me my f**king cut, dude. I said ‘let’s go’ for a second, I made your song,” GreekGod stated sarcastically, before jesting that both himself and his community “made BTS” in light of it sounding like he was on their new track.
After being prompted to sue the Korean pop band, Antonatos admitted that “I couldn’t even sue that for that… There’s no way, dude. Who f**king cares, to sue? Let them have it.”
While GreekGod appeared convinced that he’d been sampled in the Bangtan Boys’ latest release, it transpired that the snippet was from Decap’s ‘Drums That Knock: Vol. 3’ EP — which features a plethora of accessible samples.
It just so happens that both samples were used in UGH! and GGX Gang. So much to Greek’s dismay, his claim to Korean fame has been temporarily put on hold.
