Just Blaze is one of those producers who make beats that sound better by themselves than with a rapper or singer on top. Recently the legendary producer dropped a militant instrumental titled “Miracles,” and shares the story behind why it is unused. Blaze took to Twitter to announce his uncertainty on whether or not it should be released because he fears the string of inadequate “struggle raps” that’ll come along with it. Featuring Canei Finch on the keys, Just Blaze informs listeners that none of the sequences are ever repeated, which is uncommon in hip-hop music. Check out what else he had to say about it below:
“Jay asked me to hold this for him and Jeezy. Ross did something with it. Chris Brown wanted it badly but couldn’t find the right vocal flow for it once we got in studio. Canei wanted to pass it to Cole, but it was held up by someone else who actually cut me a check for it. Then it ended up just sitting, and I was weird about playing it for folks. Everyone who heard it thought it was amazing but couldn’t come up with a song to it [laughs]. Understandable though. There’s a lot going on. I may do this more often. Shouts out to Canei on the godly piano riffs that are different each time throughout the entire track. If you’re going to attempt to rap on it, be respectful and rap good.”
