THE TIME I DISSED KANYE… (what an idiot i am)
SOUNDBOMBING III, the Rawkus Records compilation album series that I did with Mr. Choc from the west side. People are always asking for this album and I only have like 4 copies left so it’s time to go web/digital. So for all my “underground” heads aka backpackers… please enjoy.
Now the funny thing about this album is that it took forever to record. I had gotten a few songs done and Rawkus jacked them for the Lyricist Lounge 2 album. Their show was popular at the time so they had to keep the momentum up and get the album out. Finally, through battles and wars , we finished recording. The day me and Mr. Choc went into the studio to actually mix the records to make the album, an up and coming producer was next door. He had done some Roc-a-fella records but wasn’t that known yet. He wanted to rap on the album but we couldn’t do it cause everything was ready to go. We had the wax pressed up, all the clearances and a release date. We wouldn’t have time to get the sample clearance for this guys song and we explained that to him. He came up with a great solution… he would spit an acapella verse for an interlude. Like a dick head I was like “naw, I think we are pretty much done with the album, maybe next time”. Yeah that guy was Kanye West …. did i say what an Idiot I was???? The verse was dope too, it wasn’t like it was a wack verse. This is why I always try to help out up and coming artist now… the guilt. I’m sure he doesn’t even remember that shit.
peace to the gods.
