Blaze stated:

I remember the day [Kanye] came to the studio with “Takeover” and everybody went crazy. Myself included. I was working on ‘U Don’t Know’ in the other room. He comes in, and he’s like, “How did you get your horns to do this? And how do the drums…” He was asking me questions about how I constructed that. The same way I would have questions for him about how he might have chopped up certain things.
