Pete Rock and Q-Tip Production Confirmed On Jay-Z & Kanye West's "Watch The Throne"
Hip Hop's "Soul Survivor" will pilot some beats on Jay and 'Ye's EP, says West. Meanwhile, Madlib may also conduct beats on the project.
Legendary Mt. Vernon, New York producer/deejay/emcee Pete Rock has long been credited as an influence to Kanye West. The man who produced Hip Hop classics such as "They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)" for his partner CL Smooth has reportedly contributed work to Kanye West's upcoming Dark Twisted Fantasy, along with fellow '80s and '90s New York Hip Hop production luminaries DJ Premier and Q-Tip.
West has now claimed that Pete Rock, who's supplied hits to artists such as Ghostface Killah, Freddie Foxxx, Nas and Rahzel is a producer on Watch The Thrown, the collaborative EP between Kanye and mentor Jay-Z. While Pete Rock has yet to speak on the matter, West also said that Oxnard, California producer Madlib may also be a producer on the EP.
