A day after Kanye West was accused of ripping off a French film fror his new "All Of The Lights" music video, a previous accusation has once again come to light. AraabMuziki, a Dipset producer who has worked with artists like Busta Rhymes and 50 Cent, is widely known for performances using his MPC (music production center) but the MPC performance came to light when Kanye West did it live on the MTV Video Music Awards.. but AraabMuzik says Kanye ripped him off.
A week before Kanye West's performance at the VMAs, araabmuzik says that he was in the studio with some associates of Kanyes' who he says video taped him playing/performing with the MPC… that's where AraabMuzik says he got the idea.
“Kanye’s never in his life brought a machine out and done that,” AraabMuzik said. “Everyone knows he’s biting me.” (NewYork Times)
