“Last week I was stumbling through my garage, searching through old storage bins, when I came across some old beat CDs from my days as a signed Interscope rapper. I was shocked to find that two of them, both given to me in ‘01, had the name Kanye West on them. These two CDs, which I believe are the oldest Kanye beats ever released, now celebrate their 10 year anniversary.
I think this collection of early Kanye beats shows you where he came from, even if it doesn’t necessarily sound like ‘Kanye’ now. He kept at it and became the incredible producer he is today. I remember he even had to leave the studio sessions early, so he could make the last train back to his mom’s house. He’s come a long way, and I’m proud to have been around, even if for just a second at the start.”

Producer Sha Money XL has shared his thoughts on former G-Unit member Game’s career six years after his departure from 50 Cent’s group and what the West Coast emcee needs to win.
Admitting Game is still struggling without the backing of G-Unit, Sha said his former associate ultimately needs a hit record to spark his career again.
“Game is cool, I think he just needs me,” Sha said in an interview with radio host EI8HT. “I gave him ‘Hate It Or Love It,’ I gave him that record. He needs 50 [Cent], he needs us, he needs a Unit. And you see he tried to make a play to get back to us. I hand delivered that record, ‘Hate It Or Love It,’ so he just needs that banger and he’ll be all right. He can rap but he needs to stop shouting out so many names in the songs and just rap. He’s got that sh*t. He comes with it, but, he’s like Nas, they don’t pick the right beats sometimes.” (“Street Disciplez Radio”)
