Pusha T Says He Originally Passed On Jay-Z & Kanye West's "Paris" Beat

The G.O.O.D. Music signee says he originally vetoed using the beat after 'Ye played it for him.

Pusha T recently revealed that he originally passed on the Hit-Boy-produced beat that eventually became Jay-Z and Kanye West's "Niggas in Paris." Speaking with Sneeze magazine, the Clipse member said that he doesn't know if it would have been as good if it ended up in his possession and that he would have attacked it in a different way.

"I tell people all the time that I don’t know if I would’ve attacked it that way which means the record might not have been as special once I got on it," he said.

Pusha Ton continued by explaining that Kanye gave him the beat and that he simply wasn't in the right state of mind to rap over it.

"‘Ye gave me beats and that was in the bunch. 'Niggas in Paris' was playful to me and I was in demonic rap mode. I was like, 'Yo, I don’t want this right now,' he was like, 'Man, this will be a club smash,' and I’m like, 'Maybe, but don’t ask me to wrap my brain around that when I’m writing stuff like ‘My God,’ which is another Hit Boy beat."

    OH so now its a "weak beat anyway" why? because jay and ye rapped over it?? i swear you fake homo-thugs be coming on these websites talking out ya'll a**..that songs a hit so STFU...anyways shout out to pusha T

    Jay prolly would of stole the beat back once he heard it. I actually think the beat is pretty shit - the only bit I like is the bit Kanye added to the end - "you are now watching the throne" The first comment on thread says it all.

    this makes sense. but passing on a hit is still passing on a hit anyway you look at it check out this dude throwing a cat out of a 3rd story window during a video shoot cuz the model wudnt let him smash http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOpo8gKRbfs

    Pusha's comments agreed wholeheartedly with my thoughts after I read the article title: this beat simply doesn't fit his style. But it was a good match for Jay and Kanye.

      Y'all got it all twisted because you're thirsty and starstruck. Go ask Magoo & Skillz where all them Timbaland beats that he said were hits. Ask Bishop Lamont where all them Dre beats that were certified bangers. Timbaland was selling Jay slum beats saying they were hits. Kanye made "Hate" for Jay, and that was 14K gold filled.

      Co-Sign 100%. With someone with as many hits as Kanye, I wouldn't even listen to reason. He says its gonna be a hit, I be like okay, it sounds like the remix to the ice cream truck theme song, but imma spit the shit out of it if you say it'll be a hit...Like if timbaland, dre or any certified hit producer did so as well, i'd be on it son!

  • YADIG
