Will.I.Am Admits Stealing Beat From Arty And Zo’s “Rebound”

Black Eyed Peas singer will.i.am is admitting to stealing a beat for his new record with Chris Brown, “Let’s go.”

Arty from Arty and Mat Zo, blasted the super-producer on Twitter earlier this month, calling him a thief for sampling their tune, “Rebound”. Will had remained quiet about the allegations, but finally did a little bit of damage control by explaining his side of things during an interview with KISS FM.

“So this song by Chris Brown, ‘Let’s Go’ … Arty is a dope producer so I wrote this song to ‘Rebound’ this last year,” will divulged. “I got in touch with Arty and showed it to him, did a different version to it ’cause I asked him [to] make it newer ’cause I don’t just wanna take your song and rap over it. But we did that, we collaborated.”

“But in a year’s time, time’s gone by [and] we preferred writing over and using the [original] ‘Rebound’. Something happened and the clearance … hopefully we resolved the issue,” will continued.

“I’m a fan of Arty; I think he’s great and the world needs to know about how talented those guys are. It’s sad that it’s turned into a fiasco but hopefully it’s resolved because I’m a fan of those guys to the point where I wrote to their instrumental.”

Arty claims that no one from will’s label ever contacted Anjunabeats, which reps the producer.

DMX Is Clean, Sober And Plans To Stay That Way!

It’s a new dawn, a new day … DMX is sober!

The rapper’s lengthy history with drug abuse has been well documented by his many arrest and sometimes bizarre behavior, but Dark Man X is putting all of that behind him.

X has been in a treatment facility since late August and has been doing really well. The rapper opted for rehab instead of house arrest in order to improve his chances of kicking his drug habit and it looks like it may have worked.

Sources tell TMZ, the program is almost complete, but x will probably stay another 30 days since he’s been responding so well. X has even been able to take day trips with a friend to a nearby town.

Congrats to DMX!
