It’s all about the beats, man. All of them. The beats. And the guests. Not just the guests. The hosts. DJ Drama, the newest one on the block.
How long have you been working on this project?
When I started it was for my album that is now on the way but when you do something like this you always look towards the next album and what’s next. A lot of the people in this industry just want to make money and stay busy, and they are really lazy, but there is a whole different generation of musicians now that want to make a name for themselves, they want to make their music heard and to have an identity that they want their kids to remember. I am really excited for people seeing it and I am really excited for music that inspires people. I look at the whole thing as an artistic outlet, I really do. I’m not trying to become famous, I’m trying to create. I know some producers that make music that people can’t really relate to or that doesn’t appeal to them, and I don’t want that. I just want people to be inspired by the good stuff and to like that stuff.
How did you come upon the idea for the project?
I’m a big Kanye West fan, and I went back and listened to that music for a long time now so when he came out with a new album and released a new song, the second my phone blew up with a text message from him and I think what he was asking me was: “Yo man! Is there something going on with you?” I’m like: “Yo, no way man, is there something going on?” so he gave me a call and told me he was in the studio with this new song and it was incredible! He told me, he was like: “Yo! You gotta catch the next one, it’s awesome.” I was like: “This sounds amazing, what are you still in the studio with you? There’s no way!” he’s like: “No, dude. No, we are not working on any songs. We are just waiting for me to finish the next one.” So I’m like: “We got a lot more left, I just need to do some stuff with the album.”
You have the name of each track written on the back of the cards. But what makes the project different from any of the previous beats?
I like the beats that people make in their basements.
