People Are Calling Out Jake Paul For "Copying" KSI's Song

On August 15th, just 10 short days before fight against Deji "Comedy Shorts Gamer" Olatunji, Jake Paul released a song and boxing-themed music video, called "Champion." But just one day after release, the song and Jake have come under fire for allegedly copying parts of KSI's 2016 song, "successful."
Fans are claiming that the hook in Jake Paul's song - where he raps "bitch I'm a fuckin' champion" - steals from the hook in Encore, where KSI raps, "Can I get a fucking encore?".
Randolph, who collaborated with KSI on "Encore" posted a video yesterday discussing the claims. Listen to the two snippets below and see what you think:
JAKEEE WYD 😱 This had to be on purpose to create controversy and troll the Olatunjis. This man knows how to be a heel. Doesn't that hook sound too similar to you? 'Encore' by @ksi and 'Champion' by @jakepaul - #ksi #ksiolajidebt #ksivsloganpaul #boxing #youtube #jakepaulers #logang #erikacostell #anthonytrujillo #deji #cloutgang #ricegum #fazebanks #alissaviolet #wroetoshaw #miniminter #youtubeboxing #dejivsjakepaul #jakepaulvsdeji #wolfie #jakepaul #comedyshortsgamer #deji #sidemen #loganpaul
The similarities have lead to KSI's fans calling Jake out. "Way to rip off KSI's song, just goes to show how fake you and your brother have become," one fan wrote. "Dunno why you would make the same song as the king of England there is no point in competing," another tweeted.

Jake Paul has yet to respond to the plagiarism accusations.
