IP theft taken to the next level

This was a strange post to stumble on from Tell the Wolves I'm Home author Carol Rifka Brunt:

Here's one to put in the super bizarre box... Rapper Gerald Walker has decided to appropriate not only my title, but the entire cover of my book for his latest song. I have to say that even in the remotest outposts of my imagination I never saw the possibility that my literary novel about a geeky suburban 14-year-old and her gay friend might intersect with the world of rap/hip hop. Now, the question is, should this make me angry or should I just be enjoying the humor in the strangeness of the situation?

For the record, I'd be pissed.

See the stolen cover, listen to the song with the stolen title.
