Chris Brown is responding to accusations that will.i.am ripped off a song by Arty and Mat Zo to make his latest track "Let’s Go," which features Brown.
"I don’t even know who mat zo Or arty is? I ain’t got s–t to do wit if ur mad or not. Someone asked for a feature on a record and I did it," Brown Tweeted.
Eloquent as always … but we see his point.
Will.i.am, meanwhile, has not yet responded to the claims from Arty and Mat Zo that he ganked the duo’s dance track "Rebound." Here’s both:
"They never cleared rights through Anjunabeats, who’s only one label, who ownes [sic] the rights for ‘Rebound,’" Arty tweeted of the alleged pilfering.
The backlash was so severe that his collaborator tried to quell the feud.
Mat Zo later wrote: "I really and truely [sic] appreciate all the support you are giving me and Arty in response to Will I Am’s copyright infringement."
"However, this doesnt excuse the horrific abuse youre sending the way of Will I Am and Chris Brown, and it especially doesnt excuse being racist," he wrote.
That’s nice at least. Hopefully cooler heads will prevail.
Chris Brown will surely appreciate that not everyone is a hater. After all, he merely showed up to lend his vocals to the song. This one’s on will.i.am.
What do you think? Is "Let’s Go" a ripoff of "Rebound"?
