If you can think back to when rumors were still swirling about Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, you might remember that DJ Premier was originally listed as a guest producer. But it turns out that the beat he submitted didn’t end up making the cut, as anyone who heard the album and read the liner notes knew already. What we didn’t know, though, is what the beat sounded like. As you can tell by the headline, that’s all changed now thanks to the fansite for the legendary producer/DJ. DJ Premier Blog just posted the piano-laden beat for streaming and noted that Bun B also passed on this one for his Trill OG record. This might be a pretty smooth production, but I can’t blame them for skipping this one as it would not have fit in on either record, especially Ye’s.
