!llmind "Beats For Kanye West" (Beat Tape)

This is a beat tape from last year (maybe later) that I decided to dust off today and share with whomever reads this blog. !llmind had this to say about the tape when it was first released in the summer of 2003: “Kanye West is undoubtedly one of the most exciting producer/artists to emerge in the last decade. His music is one of the few I can safely say I whole-heartedly admire (next to the late great J. Dilla). I had the pleasure of producing “The Morning” off of 2012’s highly anticipated “Kanye West Presents: G.O.O.D. Music Cruel Summer” LP. During the creation of that song, and between the months of July 2012 – March 2013, I created a handful of tracks with Kanye West in mind. This is a collection of some of that music. It features collaborations and co-production from my long time friend Symbolyc One (Produced Kanye West’s “Power”, “Murder 2 Excellence” on Watch The Throne and part of Kanye’s “Very G.O.O.D. Beats” entity), Dr. Know Jr, M31RK, Hippie Sabotage, Kailiin Yong and The Frontrunnerz. I had so much fun creating this stuff, and I hope you enjoy it just as much as I do.” Click play below and you can D/L it for free HERE.
