Kirk Franklin has been trending in the streets of Twitter all day thanks to DJ Luke Nasty.
Luke, the self-proclaimed “Sample King,” released a snippet of his latest musical offering titled, “Rain,” and it contains a sample of Kirk’s classic gospel tune, “Melodies From Heaven.”
The snippet went viral after someone reacted to the song by tweeting:
There’s no way Kirk Franklin cleared this sample….
See the tweet below:
The tweets and jokes rolled as people began to question whether or not Kirk cleared the sample.
Mr. Franklin took to Instagram to make it very clear he did NOT clear any use of his song.
Welp. That’s that on that!
Luke did flip the heck out of that sample tho.
Forgive me, Lord.
