Did Pharrell Bite Peven Everett?

In the clip below Peven Everett does a side-by-side comparison of his "Party of the Year" to Britney's "Sugarfall", produced by Pharrell. Yes, the compositional similarities are glaring, but pay close attention to Peven's voiceover along with the imagery used in the clip. He's calling out more than just Pharrell. Of course, Peven's no stranger to putting people on blast. I know what I hear, and although I'm not taking sides on this issue, it continues to amaze me how artists that are more widely-known would flagrantly appropriate the work of an indie. Of course, the infraction won't reach the awareness of many, as folks like Pharrell and his ilk are protected by piles and piles of money. What say you? [DotSpotter]

  1. Yes...it sounds very much alike...the drums are different, but everything else is all there. Does not surprise me that Skateboard Pea bit from Peven. BTW, I did see Peven in concert in L.A. a couple of years back, and let me tell you, this brotha is the TRUTH!!!!
    If Peven comes thru your town, you gotta go check him out. You will not be disappointed!

  2. This ain't the first time Pharrell's been accused of beat-biting.
    This guy claims Pahrrell and Jay lifted his beat for "Blue Magic".

  3. Snap! That was hard. I ain't made at Peven though. Too many people give mainstream artists too much credit when they've bitten off some underground stuff figuring that they're too low on the totem pole to speak out.
    Big ups Peven!

  4. i wasn't listening to what peven was talking about but why was a silhouette of thicke in the video with a question mark on his face?

  5. yeah Tia, I didn't get that either. What did Thicke do? Pharrell's the VA homie, but I agree thats pretty much a bite right there.
