I had the pleasure of producing “The Morning” off of 2012’s “Kanye West Presents: G.O.O.D. Music Cruel Summer” LP. During its creation, and between the months of July 2012 – March 2013, I created a handful of tracks with Kanye West in mind. This is a collection of some of that music. It features collaborations and co-production from my long time friend Symbolyc One (Kanye West’s “Power”, “Murder 2 Excellence” on Watch The Throne & part of Kanye’s “Very G.O.O.D. Beats” entity), Dr. Know Jr., M31RK, Hippie Sabotage, Kailiin Yong & The Frontrunnerz. I had so much fun creating this stuff, and I hope you enjoy it just as much as I do.
The perenially-underrated !llmind drops off a very interesting instrumental project here, and one that on a very quick skim through sounds like an excellent collection of productions. Between tracks with cut up vocal samples, thudding percussion and more, pretty much everything included sounds very well-suited to Kanye’s own diverse nature- truth be told, beyond its intended use as a pack of beats for ‘Ye, they’re a good set of productions that I’m sure many rappers would love to have for themselves. Example: it’s not a stretch to imagine Slaughterhouse on that Rolling Stone beat. A solid demonstration of the producer’s abilities, and you can download it here or stream it below.
