Black Eyed Peas member will.i.am had quite the quote to give Rolling Stone in his recent interview. 

While discussing the current state of hip-hop, will.i.am had this to say...

The problem with hip-hop is everybody could do it. It doesn’t take much f**king skill right now to make hip-hop. It’s become the lowest-hanging fruit. It’s no longer about Rakim-level, Nas-level, not the deep, metaphorical simile s**t. Out of respect for the Nases of the world, let’s not call it hip-hop. Let’s say that’s rap. But instrumental music is going to be the next biggest s**t. 

While a lot of people could agree and understand will.i.am's take, platinum producer's J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League weren't really feeling it.

J.U.S.T.I.C.E League took to Twitter today to let the "Boom Boom Pow" rapper know that they were still making incredible hip-hop, full orchestra and all. 

My brother @iamwill with all due respect , while you was making "boom boom pow" we was in the studio with a full orchestra making "Maybach Music 3" with Ross Badu and Jadakiss. We are the embodiment of TRULY enabling classic, new GROUNDBREAKING  hip-hop...

Well, will.i.am surprising responded, and nicely let  J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League know that he also had worked with an orchestra. Instead of with Rick Ross, will.i.am worked with NASA in which they sent the music to Mars and boomed it back to Earth. 

Say what?!?

FYI...While I was making “boom boom pow” I was also in the studio with a 30piece orchestra making a song with @nasa & sent that song to mars on the #curiosityROVER & beamed it back to earth...I’m happy you love music as much as I do...keep rocking with orchestra’s...
