Rhymefest Confirmed To Be A Writer On Kanye West's "Yeezus"

Rhymefest Confirmed To Be A Writer On Kanye West's "Yeezus"

From "Jesus Walks" to "Yeezus," the Kanye West and Rhymefest co-writing connection appears to remain strong 10 years later.

Kanye West's third solo single of his career, "Jesus Walks" helped launch a career. West's co-writer on the College Dropout song, a fellow Chicago, Illinois native Rhymefest, would take the 2004 fanfare, including a Grammy Award, and sign a major label deal with J Records and Mark Ronson's Allido Records.

The pair has collaborated sporadically since, notably on 'Fest's own breakthrough 2005 single "Brand New," but not much in the last five years. Pitchfork has pointed out that Rhymefest, who has since run for alderman in his hometown, is a credited writer within the full liner notes, available exclusively online, to West's sixth album,Yeezus, released yesterday (June 18). West is listed, as is government name, Che Smith.

In 2010, Rhymefest released his sophomore album, and first since leaving J Records, El Che. While Kanye did not work on the album, one of the producers signed to West's production company, S1 (of Strange Fruit Project), produced four of the LP's 16 songs.

That same year, S1 explained to HipHopDX how Rhymefest introduced him to Kanye West: "One day Rhymefest told me to send him a few beats over and he will try to play a few for Kanye [West]. Originally, I wasn't going to put that "Power" beat in the beat batch because I used similar drums as Kanye did on "Crack Music." So I was [thinking] he's definitely not gonna pick this one however I sent the beat anyway. Then a couple weeks later I received a text from 'Fest saying, "Kanye is loving your stuff, He said he's about to change your life." Two days later I was on a flight to Hawaii to meet Mr. West. The rest is pretty much history."

The sticker to the retail version of Yeezus only includes album samples and interpolations. Those include Gang Starr's "Chief Rocka" and "Memories" by Beenie Man.

AND IT DONT STOP!

It's not just haters, it's hip hop fans period. Ye stans always want to act like he's a top lyricist but when he gets exposed for having others pen his verses, they backtrack and say, "As long as the music is good, I don't care."
top lyricist no, but one of the GOATS yes... kinda like pac

Crabs in a bucket man....why blow it up if he really did write that sh*t?....He still got paid so why is he dry snitchin'? Dude got sour cuz Kanye took his words and made them fresher.

Now that Kanye done pissed off the White folk, Boxden will do anything to take him down.....How are cats gonna call out snitches on one thread but praise snitches like this fool on this thread. Boxden logic

It's too much how many times he been sued for his "work"...

Too many cats got ghosts tho. I've come to realize that Snoop Dogg has, not just w/ the DOC but thru his whole career...then Game followed in his footsteps after he couldn't break past the name dropping thing. Wayne been hittin up Drake for verses since the dude got signed. sh*t is normal now.
