Is American rapper T-Pain looking to Bollywood for inspiration?

That appears to be the case, as his new surprise track 'That's Yo Money' has been blocked on YouTube for copyright violations after similarities between the melodies of this song and Aashiqui 2 hit 'Tum Hi Ho' were pointed out.

According to Times of India, the video was blocked after tweets by the song composer Mithoon and Aashiqui 2 director Mohit Suri.

T-Pain's response to the tweets has been criticised for being racist and arrogant.

He said he woke up to being "dragged down by brown Twitter" and added that he neither produced the song nor did he know the source of the music sampled in his track and that the music label will be in touch.
