Wheres’ the love? Will.I.am is apparently suing Pharrell for infringing on Will’s “I Am” brand, and in a statement given to RollingStone Skateboard P weighs into the lawsuit:
“I am disappointed that Will, a fellow artist, would file a case against me. I am someone who likes to talk things out and, in fact, I attempted to do just that on many occasions. I am surprised in how this is being handled and I am confident that Will’s trademark claims will ultimately be found to be as meritless and ridiculous as I do.”
Mr. West is no stranger to controversy. After causing a stir last year with his “Theraflu/Cold” recording and PETA over his fur coat reference and now TMZ reports that a lyric on his new Yeezus album has The American Parkinson Disease Association up in arms over, “We get this bitch shaking like Parkinson’s”. Says VP Kathryn Whitford:
”We find these lyrics distasteful and the product of obvious ignorance.”
After previously serving 3 years at the label in a Senior VP role at Def Jam, Shawn Pecas receives his promotion to Executive Vice President of the label that is home to Kanye West, 2 Chainz among others. We’re happy for him!
“Def Jam is the greatest hip-hop label in the world and it is an honor and a privilege to work with such incredible artists every day. I am appreciative of Steve Bartels for his leadership and his continued faith in me as we move the Def Jam brand into the future. With our talented staff, an unprecedented roster of superstars and an exciting crop of newcomers, we are poised to win big in 2013″
Island Def Jam’s President/COO, Steve Bartels adds:
“I am thrilled to announce this well deserved promotion. I have worked with Pecas for many years and have watched him grow significantly over that time. I look to Pecas for applying his energy and deep artist relationships towards helping us drive Def Jam on the path to continued greatness.”
