Early reports hinted that Kanye West was initially looking for a “real hip hop touch” My Deautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. As time has told, the LP resulted in a genre-breaking opus that had critics and fans alike on lock. DJ Premier now brings forth “JJ Beat” which was tailor made for ‘Ye. However, he rejected it – and so did Bun B.
What do we have here? Aaaaah yes, a beat specially made for Kanye West when he requested some for his “Dark Twisted Fantasy” album. Sad he never used is though… Later on it was also given to Bun B, but also he didn’t record on it… That’s the history behind it, now it’s known as the “JJ Beat”. Btw: another beat that Kanye West didn’t used went to Bumpy Knuckles for the collabo album “The Kolexion”. You have to know the beat was rejected because Kanye West changed the direction of his album… this was created when everybody thought he was going to make that “Boom Bap” album.Masterpiece, listen up.
So who would you like to hear rhyming over this?
