DJ Luke Nasty Samples Kirk Franklin; Both Social Media & Kirk Not Happy

  • DJ Luke Nasty sampled Kirk Franklin's, Melodies from Heavenon his new song Rain.
  • In addition to the sample, the cover art for the song is very suggestive.
  • Luke Nasty posted the cover art with a snippet of the song and captioned it, I have to chill LMAO #SampleKing.
  • Social media erupted saying it was inappropriate sampling the song.
  • Kirk Franklin poetically responded on Instagram. In a video he is playing Melodies from Heavenon his keyboards and then says, ya'll know me, y'all been knowing me for a long time. I have not cleared any other version of that song.
