House of Balloons was an entire rip off from some dude who now goes by the name of Zodiac

>At a party
>Abel is there
>Zodiac is there
>Zodiac shows Abel the beats he was working on
>Abel starts to rap over them
>Zodiac asks him if he wanted to be part of this project called the Weeknd
>Zodiac gives him the beats for the first 3 songs and asks ofc for credits
>Abel posts the songs on a blog or w/e
>Slowly starts getting noticed
>Abel does not credit Zodiac
>at all
>Abel gets diff producers to basically reproduce the first 3 song's beats
>House of Balloons drops. hype ensues
>Zodiac gets shit
>everything after House of Balloons sucks ass, which shows really who was the actual mastermind behind the weeknd

guthrie govan said something like this: if you rip off one artist, its plagiarism, but if you rip off a lot of artists it's research.

>>55520229
haha yeah, to be fair he probably plagisarised that quote from someone else. the message is the same tho
>>
Art is a game of stealing usually, even when you take an influence.

Creativity parts from the same point of expression and thus derive from the same object, if you mean covers or taking an specific chord structure yeah, there are not plagiarists but just appreciation for an specific sound taken.

True, and JPJ was always pretty original. I"ll say Robert Plant or Jimmy Page then.

fuuuuu. shit like that makes me sad. even if it might not be true I know shit like this happens, happened to sgp too.
>>
So how do you make it then? If you hand some demo's to a producer, they could easily just rip you off and pretend to have never gotten them, labels can do the same thing. What the fuck?
>>
>>55520136
the best parts of house of balloons didn't even involve Zodiac. He did get fucking screwed, but people underestimate Abel too much. At least for that first mix, he was on par with Zodiac

Actually, the BEST part of HOB was Zodiac's tracks (first 3 or 4 IIRC). You can see the sudden change in style by the 4th track, which IMO goes downhill. And even then, the producers were literally biting and copying Zodiac's style.

And yeah, Abel might be underrated, but the fact is everything after HOB has been a flop, and I don't think it was a coincidence that with Zodiac out of the pic the quality of the albums have gone to the shitter.
>>
>>55521946
yeah, rating HOB tracks would kinda be a matter of taste but you're definitely right about the abismal quality dip after him.

I still got my Zodiac EP, the dude has it in him

I didn`t believe that was actually a group til I looked it up - the name is obviously a rip from the Theoretical Girls - no wave group with Glenn Branca in it
I mean, I`ve idly thought that since The Cramps did a Spongebob appearance as the Bird Brains, it`d make sense for someone else to do an homage to the experimental scene in a cartoon, like Hypothetical Girls (all guys) or whatever... I didn`t think that would actually be a real thing...

whatever even happened to them? they just kinda dropped off the face of the earth
