It was pretty amazing
They did ask us and i wasnt sure at first, ive always been a bit of a ‘purist’ myself and Jay Z and Kanye West to me seemed like popstars.
But i was in NYC and hit up a club in lower eastside with Skrillex and we went in and they were playing michael jackson and stuff, i remember Skril telling me that downstairs was where it all goes down. We went down there and it felt like id just walked into the club scene in 8 Mile, was insane. The DJ was dropping track after track and people were going crazy, Skril kept turning to me and saying ‘This is Jay Z’ …’This is Kanye’
It was then i realised that i had never experienced this music where it was meant to be experienced, and i got it.
walked out of the club and instantly called my management asking if the interest was still there, and we went for it!
