Looks like two DMV artists might be beefing. 

Tank released the offcial music video for his track "Dirty" on Monday, and the next day Raheem DeVaughn jumped on Instagram to accuse him of stealing the concept from his own video for 2010's "She's Single."

Raheem wrote in a caption: "And now for industry history lesson called 'I did it 1st' The year was 2010 the video/song was called “She’s Single” one of the most provocative, tasteful risky videos introduced in 'R&B/Soul' I was band and restricted on YouTube + mentioned on CNN to this day of release! They still ask to this day was I acting or -- . Nice try homes but I did it 1st ---- #FactsNoFiction @6ixshoota --"

And now for industry history lesson called “I did it 1st” The year was 2010 the video/song was called “She’s Single” one of the most provocative, tasteful risky videos introduced in “R&B/Soul” I was banned and restricted on YouTube + mentioned on CNN to this day of release! They still ask to this day was I acting or -- . Nice try homes but I did it 1st ---- #FactsNoFiction @6ixshoota --

While the visuals are definitely similar, it's debatable whether Tank actually ripped off Raheem.
