Chop worked with Ye on Yeezus, and the fellow Chicago native says he served as a producing consultant on the project. While speaking with VladTV, Chop called Kanye a genius and the most talented producer he has ever worked with.
When the subject of West’s 6th solo album not being many fans’ favorite was mentioned, Chop made it clear that Kanye was aware how his new music would be received.
“Kanye know that. He knew that when we were working on it. He knows that s**t,” said Chop. “He wanted to just do the s**t to prove a point – he can do anything.”
