Black Eyed Peas producer will.i.am is being accused of stealing a beat from house producers, Mat Zo and Arty. Will allegedly lifted the beat from the a tune titled “Rebound”, and used it for a collaborative effort with Chris Brown.
Arty has taken to Twitter, claiming that will never approached his Anjunabeats label about clearing the beat for use.
“They never cleared rights through Anjunabeats, who’s [the] only one label [that] owns the rights for ‘Rebound’.”
Arty also chimed in on the drama, writing on Facebook: “Will I’m Not…”
The shots didn’t sit well with Chris Brown who defended himself on Twitter, writing:
“I don’t even know who Mat Zo Or Arty is? I ain’t got sh*t to do wit if you’re mad or not. Someone asked for a feature on a record and I did it … I don’t listen to that shit half the time anyway.”
