Pusha is a pretty confident dude to actually admit that he passed on Hit Boy’s “N–gas In Paris” beat. As you know, The Throne ended up destroying it and is currently ruling radio with the single. That sh*t cray. yea yea. Our man Joe La Puma got the scoop on this while talking to Push for Sneeze Magazine.
Sneeze: You were around for some of the Watch The Throne sessions, were there any beats on that album that you passed on?
PUSHA: “Niggas in Paris!” [Laughs.] 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.
Wow, that’s interesting.
PUSHA: ‘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.”
Bonus: Young Jeezy “N–gas In Paris (Freestyle)”
Pusha’s comments about 50 Cent after the jump…
On 50 Cent:
“Raid” the song you have with 50 and Pharrell is crazy. A lot of people feel like 50 is in vintage 50 form on that record…
PUSHA: I called Pharrell and said, “Yo, if you go back in with him and you make about seven more of those type of tracks you’re going to be responsible for something that’s monumental.” People don’t know that 50 Cent is like my favorite. Lyrically he’s not my favorite artist, but as a whole he’s my favorite artist. No one has done what he’s done in such a short time. What I always wanted 50 Cent to do was to get with all top-tier super-producers — Just Blaze, Kanye West, Pharrell, Chad Hugo, put out an album like that.
