It's just business Sis.

He stole nothing, you signed it away and gave it to him. Bet you learned to read after that huh.

I can't stand that little elvish black Asian looking niqqa. He steals everything. He figured 'I ain't going to sample because I gotta pay for the audio AND publishing, but if I just just steal the music and place different instruments then I get ALL of theb publishing'.
A fan of his, a canadian high school kid, sent a demo and the elf went up to canada, got the original tracks for the demo song, used it for a production and promised the kid a contract. Guess what that kid never got. I never understood the neptunes hype.

This is very typical of the music and movie business. Kelis there is black magic for that, I would fuck his lil thieving ass up. I never got the hype about him and fake ass marriage.

I love Kelis even though her temper is questionable. Rihanna's talentless ass ripped off and swagger jacked Kelis's entire swag, music style, fashion sense, anti-pop image, etc. from every Kelis era. And Lady Gaga ripped off her look as well.

Kelis was one of the original carefree, edgy, alternative Black girls of the millennial next to Aaliyah, Joi, and Fefe Dobson.

I don't think Kelis is the best singer but she's a talented songwriter and she and Neptunes created magic and they were pioneers of the alt-R&B/emo rock-influenced R&B that is popular now. It's a shame they've come to such a bitter end. But Pharrell's tacky wannabe Japanese ass already tainted his reputation with that Blurred Lines lawsuit.

His ass needs to pay up!

@11:11 AM. Yeah That’s the way white people do business a.k.a. the devil. Real business is done with character and honesty. When business is done right both parties leave the table happy. Pharrell and the Neptunes suck

I aint never thought Rihanna was similar or even close to repeating or doing anything Kelis @12:49. When Babyface and LA Reid pay TLC and Toni Braxton for the contract they signed and got ripped off, then she will get hers....... YEA RIGHTTTT

She’s right, “It all comes back around, you just wait.” The continued ‘Blurred Lines’ suit is Exhibit A

@first 1:11

Please Google and you'll see how much Rihanna ripped off Kelis. I'm sick of all you Fenty Navy stans. You all are worse than the damn Beyhive and that says A LOT!

And because they got cheated, they deserved to get ripped off?! Gone somewhere!

The Neptunes don't suck creatively but they suck when it comes to ethics.

I read somewhere that Pharrell used to date Kelis and he beat her! I take it with a grain of salt, though.

33/33/33? A 666 contract. Girl bye.

@1:32 Feral sucks, the other Neptune was the producer/talent, the elf was the face.

@1:52 Let me break it down: 1/3=
33.3333333%. Nobody writes that thus they use 33% for short. And where do you get six hundred and sixty six from? Damn, math wasn't your thing in the sixth grade, huh?

Pharrell is a thief and I'm glad Marvin Gaye's estate sued his ass.

Rihanna did not rip of Kelis. It was FeFe Dobson they modeled her after. They were signed to the same label at the time. Do your research please.
