Did Childish Gambino steal 'This is America'?

Childish Gambino is under fire for allegedly plagiarizing his new hit "This Is America" from Jase Harley's “American Pharaoh," which dropped in 2016. A collaborator in Gambino's camp claims "This is America" is three years old and there is no way they lifted the track. Rumors were initially sparked on Reddit after a user reached out to Harley about the tunes sounding similar. Do you think Gambino lifted his smash?
