Will.i.am.a.shithook steals from infinitely more talented artist, sky is still blue

It seems like Will.i.am has, once again, been caught using another artist's material.

The victim this time? German wunderkind Boys Noize, whose long list of achievements in electronic music include two highly influential albums, production for superstars like Chilly Gonzales and Kelis, and owner of house music mega-label, Boysnoize Records.

For Will.i.am's next single, released under his "secret" disguise of "[[[Zuper Blahq]]]" (sic, you cannot make that shit up), the much-maligned producer looks to Boys Noize's 2010 club-anthem "Yeah!" for some heavy "inspiration." Fans, and Boys Noize, are a little less than thrilled.



Boys Noize - Yeah (2010)


[[[Zuper Blahq]]] - Dance (2011)



This is, unfortunately, not the first time that the Black Eyed Peas producer has been caught with his hand in the cookie jar: In 2009, electronic artists Adam Freeland and Deadmau5 accused Will.i.am of plagiarism.

What is Boys Noize's take on the situation?



Doesn't get more damning then that, does it?


I'm so tired of this asshole stealing from electronic artists who are obviously not making the dough he is
