Swizz Beatz slams Balenciaga for allegedly copying Ruff Ryders logo

A shirt from the fashion house's Spring/Summer 2018 collection looks uncannily similar.

The Ruff Ryders may have just reunited, but that doesn't mean loyalty from its members has dwindled.

Swizz Beatz has just publicly slammed fashion label and designer Balenciaga for allegedly copying the music collective's logo in one of its latest designs.

According to the super-producer, a shirt from the fashion house's Spring/Summer 2018 collection bears similarities to an official one belonging to the Ruff Ryders crew, circa 2000.

Posting both images to Instagram, Swizz made the uncanny comparison while challenging the label to "give back to the culture" while profiting from it. He wrote:

"@Balenciaga we must have a talk about this Ruff Ryder shirt ASAP...This is the Ruff Ryders original version from 2000 @balenciaga @vetements_official what are we doing??? Call me back blessings . I Might just want you to open up a fashion school in the bronx or harlem Just so you can give back to the culture ! thoughts ????"
