Before My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy came out I was desperately waiting for the collaboration between DJ Premier and Kanye. Ultimately it never made the cut after Kanye changed the direction of the album, the final product was so good I almost forgot that Premo was supposed to be involved. That is, until he released this – the beat he made specially for Ye.
It probably wouldn’t have fitted with the overall sound of the album but it’s a shame that it probably won’t get used anywhere else now. It’s too good to throw away. I’d love to hear Common, Black Thought or Nas destroy it. Thanks to DJ Premier Blog.
Here’s some classic Premo: “Boom” by Royce da 5’9″
