Post sat down with DJ Skee to talk about his contribution to Ye’s latest work. According to the Texas-bred rhymer, Kanye expressed appreciation for his music during a party for Kylie Jenner. That encounter led to the collaboration.
“He said, ‘Let’s get in the studio.’ He sent over that record, and I just did scratches,” explained Post. “We linked up in L.A when we were both out here, and that’s when I finished it.”
He added about working with the platinum-selling artist, “That’s a lot of pressure… It was a very scary type of deal.”
