Following yesterday’s sanctioned leak of Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “Otis,” CyHi Da Prynce spoke with 3 Little Digs about how he witnessed the titan rappers record tracks in the studio for their highly anticipated Watch the Throne LP.
“The whole process was crazy to sit there and watch both of them come together and put music together as a group, somewhat,” he explained. “The way that Kanye presents the records as a producer, and at the same time seeing Jay produce records - or have input on the record as a producer, and watching them combine they styles together.”
The G.O.O.D. Music rapper witnessed Hov recording songs in one take off the top of his head while ‘Ye sat at the helm, asking him his opinion on tracks.
“Just the musical part of it and being there, just vibing, them asking my opinion on certain shit,” he continued. “I’m like, ‘Y’all, that’s Jay and Kanye, what are y’all asking me anything for?’ They ain’t just selfish musicians, they don’t think they can’t get better. That’s why we do this, we do this to grow, we do this to get better. They’re two geniuses coming together.”
Watch the Throne is scheduled for digital release on August 1st, followed by a physical release on August 5th.
