After Will.i.am admitted that he did in fact steal the song “Rebound” from Arty & Mat Zo for his song “Let’s Go”, he sits down with none other then the Assosiated Press (AP) to explain himself. He basically plays dumb while saying some outrageous statements.
“If you look on the album there is credit. YOU CAN’T STEAL if you credited someone.”
Does Will.i.am for some reason think that you can “steal” or “sample” parts of other commercial released songs and release them as your own by simply putting someone’s name on album credits? Is he actually this horribly misinformed or just being very sneaky and playing dumb?
“That happens a bunch of times. Where legal takes so long but creative is instantaneous. And a lot of times, the community, for the sake of the art, bond with each other.”
Wow really? Arty & Mat Zo are supposed “bond over the art” after you steal one of their tracks and give them no compensation at all and release it commercially?
“What do I know? I give it to legal I’m not no attourney. I did my piece. I gave credit to the person who did it, It’s not my fault he didn’t tell me about the other guy. So who’s to blame? I didn’t know, I wasn’t in the room when you made it. You shoulda told me you had a collaborator.”
Then he actually goes on to say that he is sorry about Mat Zo not getting his name on the album credits.. Mat Zo is probably looking for a little more then simply getting his name on the album credits, maybe getting compensated for the song Will just released commercially.
This is above legal and financial obligations. It comes down to an artist who is more popular not giving respect to lesser known artist and attempting to take advantage of him. We will keep you posted on what Will.i.am plans to do.
Listen to the shocking case of Will.i.am stealing “Rebound” from Arty & Mat Zo here or below.

American muscian Will.i.am has recently been accused of stealing the song “Rebound” from Mat Zo & Arty released on internaional trance label Anjunabeats. He stole a huge section of the song and called it “sampling” in his new song “Let’s Go” which just got released on his new album. You can listen to both songs below to hear for yourself.
Well if there was any question, Will.i.am. just sat down with UK’s The Sun for an interview saying how “wrote this song to Rebound last year”.
Here’s his quotes:
“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 does Will.i.am somehow not understand the procedure of releasing music, and being in communication if you are going to blatantly “sample” a huge chunk of a track and call it out own.
Do you think Mat Zo and Arty will accept it? I don’t see them actually letting this song stay released, since it was never approved by either artists or the label.
Let’s also not forget Will.i.am’s previous unapproved “sampling” of Boyz Noise and Deadmau5.
