I recently lost all respect for will.i.am due to him stealing and ruining one of my all time favourite trance songs by arty and mat zo. If you don't know what im talking about go listen to "Lets go" by will.i.am and then listen to Rebound by arty and mat zo. As someone said above me, will.i.am constantly take tracks from others WITHOUT permission. Theres no defending such act and to make it worst, him trying to get into the EDM scene is a joke with the kind of "drops" he makes.
If only he was still making songs like in the elephunk trunk album and not selling out and becoming a thieve.
