Unreleased Kanye West beat tape circa. 1997

A very interesting listen that will help you examine Yeezy’s evolution as a producer.  Would be interesting to see what he would have done with these beats in 2016.


No ID on Hot 97

No ID has already been responsible for crafting a classic rap album called Resurrection (Google it if you really have no clue) and now he’s got an imprint on Def Jam that is about to make folks take notice again.

He sat down with Rosenberg on Hot97 to talk about that famous come-up, his relationships with Common (@common) and Kanye West (@kanyewest) among other things.
