Dame Dash just claimed a 14-year-old Diplo beat as his own in an attempt to inspire Kanye West to get serious about rap.

West posted an inspirational video Dash seemingly sent the rapper on Twitter, but the beat playing in the background is quite obviously Diplo's song "Sarah" from the electronic producer's 2004 debut album Florida.

"I'ma send you this beat," Dash says. "I’m in the studio n---a, making motherfucking records, and I got more, so just let me know. You have to respect my creativity in this motherfucker. I’m only telling you this to get you hyped over this shit. I'ma email this shit to you. Let this shit get your mind right."

Diplo called Dash out in a Twitter response, as did the fake Diplo account created for Vice's comedy What Would Diplo Do?
