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

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.
