More blog fodder from Kanye West.
On Thursday, I visited DJ Premier at his studio and he played me the beat he made for Kanye. It’s amazing, but ‘Ye isn’t using it. Premier was annoyed, but Kanye did ask Premier for two more beats for Kanye and Jay-Z’s EP, Watch the Throne. It strikes me that My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy will be a traditional Kanye affair and Watch The Throne will host the 90s boom bap producers Kanye has been courting. Pete Rock has been confirmed as a producer on the EP and Kanye said he and Jay were rapping on beats from Q-Tip and Madlib.
I feel like Jay-Z would listen to a Madlib beat once and then ask if they could call Swizz Beatz instead.
