The producers of both tracks are at loggerheads.

After dropping his incredible new album '4 Your Eyez Only' last week, J. Cole has faced some controversy concerning one of the records’s standout tracks, 'Deja Vu'.

Shortly after the album dropped, comparisons between 'Deja Vu' and Bryson Tiller's hit 'Exchange' soon began to surface.

Producers Vinylz and Boi-1da co-produced Cole’s track, and are now accusing US producer Foreign Teck of stealing their material and using it in Tiller’s song, which was released first.

An argument soon erupted on Twitter, with Vinylz labelling Foreign a "thief":

The producer did assure Tiller that the accusations were not aimed at him directly:

Foreign soon responded, claiming that he was innocent:

But the accusations didn't stop there. 

Boi-1da also claims that Foreign stole his drum pattern for Meek Mill's 'U Know':

Vinylz then topped the argument off with a screenshot of a deleted tweet from Foreign, implying that the producer 'snitched on himself': 

Both songs sample 'Swing My Way' K.P. & Envyi.

The argument is yet to be officially settled.

What is really going on?!
