blame it on Shake January 10, 2012

In the fourth episode of Tony Williams’ #Road2KoTF, we get an in depth look at the creation of Kanye’s Flashing Lights, the writing sessions behind Champion and Barry Bonds as well as an intimate look at the NY recording session when Ye played Hov Big Brother (with the original beat) for the first time. Shouts to X on the find.

  • Randy

    there was no in depth look at flashing lights which is what i was kin of looking forward to the most. great footage though

  • imdatnihhag

    this is classic shit right here… is that big sean helping write champion???

  • easty808

    Huge Ye fan. That was some nice footage. Was hoping for more Ye/Jay in it, but still dope nonetheless

  • Woody

    i would like to hear Big Brother with that original beat, sounds to me like it was a little harder than the finished product.

    @imdatnihhag, I saw that too! but that can’t be him can it? Sean said he met him outside detroit and he freestyled his way into a deal. damn unless thats all fake.

  • Talia

    Yes, thats Big Sean! He probably was still a teen too. He been with Ye for awhile, thats dedication. I wonder if he got credited for helping with writing Champion tho.

  • MonroeMarley

    Sean spit for Ye when he was at radio station promoting Late Registation which would’ve been 04, Graduation didn’t drop til 07…so Sean was already signed to G.O.O.D.

  • Chea!

    I swear alot of brand new artist plan and mold out what they’re gonna do before making any videos or getting songs “out there”..good example is T.D.E.
