Cardo Says Jeezy & JAY Z’s “Seen It All” Beat Was Originally For Big Sean

blame it on Shake July 2, 2014

Jeezy and JAY Z shook up the internets on Sunday night with the release of their latest collaboration, “Seen It All.” A slow-riding banger that finds the “Go Crazy” duo recounting their drug dealing pasts over some lush Cardo production.

While it’s currently available on iTunes as the title track to Jeezy’s upcoming album (due out September 2nd), the track’s producer says that wasn’t always the plan.

On the phone with MTV‘s Rob Markman, Cardo reveals the instrumental-which he produced in November of 2012-was originally intended for Big Sean but ended up in Jeezy’s hands by mistake.

“I never had Jeezy or Jay Z in mind for it; Big Sean was a person I pictured on it, and Travis Scott. I sent to Jeezy by accident. I had two beats named under the same [name] in my folder for some reason and it got duplicated. I don’t know what happened; sometimes I’ll name the beat the same thing for some damn reason…. Jeezy sent me a crazy text message like, ‘This joint right here, oh my God. Oh, this is crazy,'”

Something tells me that’s a mistake he won’t ever regret making as he’s now able to add Hov to his resume. No disrespect to Sean, but c’mon… this was for the better. “Seen It All” is dope just the way it is.

  • GeniusIdiot

    sean should drop a verse or two on this and show what he woulda done on this.

  • drewsmit24

    Good to see Cardo movin on up


    pretty dope that a beat he made 2 years ago is still ill right now.

    • Ghost Of Len Bias

      SOOOOOOOO many beats/tracks in the industry get sat on. It’s crazy how much incredible music is on other people’s hard drives.

  • Dat nigga

    somehow, someway, this is just another example of how underrated big sean is. just sayin.

    • Rob_Watts


  • biff tannen

    The beat was kinda wack. But at least with jeezy n jay it got some dope bars. Something that wouldn’t have happened if it went to sean.

    • Rob_Watts

      Fucc outta here! Beat is Fire!

      • biff tannen

        It’s really not



    • Check

      Damn I completely forgot about that track. Epic.

  • Shoop™

    Glad things turned out the way they did, this beat is incredible and deserves to be ripped by Jeezy and Hov.

  • Starks

    Big Sean is just a below average version Mase during his Harlem World days.

  • summertimer

    big sean is too soft for that track. im glad it ended up w/ jeezy and jay instead.
