NESE - Superman (Soulja Boy Rip Off)


Hot Shot OST


Speaking of Cha-Bu-Duo-ness (I just invented that term) and to further illustrate on MC Hotdog's disgust with the cha bu duo mentality of the Chinese people, I found video that just screams out cha bu duo hip hop. There is drama series about basketball produced in Taiwan called Hot Shot. I don't know anything this drama but whenever one of the basketball team wins, they do a victory dance to taunt the other team called Superman. Yes, I said Superman. Sounds familiar? Wait until you hear the instrumental of Superman . Oh and there is a dance that comes with this song too called the Superman Dance! Excuse me but..... HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

This is a major rip off of Soulja Boy's Crank That and a really, really bad one at that. And to think that there are people that actually like this taunt song really baffles the heck out of me. In this song they prance around while saying "I am Superman" and "You are loser". Oh the irony of it all. Unfortunately NESE, you are also a loser because you can't make original music.

For anyone who wants to read the lyrics or the translation of this ultra crappy song its available here.

All you white trash who think NESE copied soulja boy is stupid. Soulja boy is stupid and has no talent.

The Song is Awesome. Ice T is right, Soulja Boy ruined Hip-Hop. Don't be dissing Asians just 'cause they can make better raps than Soulja Boy.

no they don't do it everytime to taunt the other team, they only did this dance after they won the regional championship

ok...i'd first like to say that you are the loser...cause this is obvi not copying soulja boy...the lyrics arent even close....the tune isnt close...nothing is similar...maybe the drama wanted an original song about the people in it being so good like...a METAPHOR omg..dont think you would understand something like that -.-'

second the time you took to post this was more revealing into your loser-ness cause you are such a loser you took the time to bash someone way more successful than you =D

So funny, the one who's started this thing should just shut the **** up, cause I've heard both the songs and they're not even close to each others.
Only thing that is similar in just few moves is the dance and nothing else.

gerard said...

WTF? how on earth did you fuckin draw a parallel between the two songs? u really are fully of shit for a person writing a blog on asian music. perhaps u should clean out ur ears, thanks for wasting 4 minutes of my life.

wtf? soulja b**** is the copy cat not nese.. dont be dissin asians cuz you jealous of our talent

TPD said...

Actually, in defense of the author, I actually DO find the two songs very similar. Listen to the two a few times. This is actually really common with Asian mainstream music. I'm not saying all Asian artists/music producers are unoriginal, but there are also plenty who "copy" American artists...they just change the beat or the music slightly but its really just about the same. And to respond to which song came first..."Crank That" came out in May 2007, and "Superman" came out the year after in 2008. Do your research if you don't believe me.

It's really funny to hear that this is a rip-off of Crank that when this song came out first... Maybe it's the other way around?

Joshua said...

Whoa, sorry, I didn't see TPD's post. I searched, Crank that came out one month before Superman. Not many songs can come out that fast in one month, so chances are they might actually both be a rip-off of another song? Just and Idea, I can't say I'm on either side.

Joshua said...

Ok, one last comment from me... i listened to both, all I can say is that they do NOT sound alike at all, only the background beats, and many background beats are used 20 times. Also,I'm sorry for not counting... Superman came out 3 months or so, not one month, after Crank That.
