FYI | owns up to the Theft of Arty & Mat Zo’s “Rebound”

Posted by on April 23, 2013


After the internet rightfully made a big fuss about will.i.scam’s theft and Chris Brown’s beat down of Mat Zo & Arty’s massive single “Rebound” without anybody’s permission, he took to the radio to comment on what he was thinking or not when he made the song. With a long history of ripping others off, deflecting these type of questions would be second nature to him, like a politician in a debate.

He went on Kiss FM to clear things up as to why he felt it was ok to take whole sections of another song and add them to his.

Arty is a dope producer so I wrote this song to Rebound this last year. I got in touch with Arty and showed it to him… but something happened and hopefully we can resolve the issue. It’s sad that it’s turned into a fiasco but hopefully it’s resolved, because I’m a fan of those guys. I contacted them last year and we’re fixing it now.

So I guess what this means is that if will.i.scam is a fan of your music, your tunes are totally free game for shameless “sampling”. If I was a producer, like Hardwell, I would conduct a stealth ninja mission and delete all of my music from his computer, back up hard drives and all USBs, and then Men in Black mind wipe him so he never knew your music existed. Then repeat again in a year. He STILL may get to your music in that time, but this seems like it would be the only way.

In terms of this situation, unless Arty & Mat Zo are willing to fight Interscope to have the song pulled from the album, which seems pretty unrealistic since it was already released and in stores all over the country and soon the world, they will just have to settle for a FATA$$ paycheck.
