Kanye West's return to pure, uncut HipHop has energized the game in a way that only Mr. West can. When West's first single, Power, from his upcoming album, Good Ass Job, was released the internet immediately went nuts Paul Wall style. And with the recent release of remix, which features Jay-Z, new verses from Kanye, background vocals from John Legend and production and adlibs from Swizz Beatz, the internet is once again in a frenzy.
Now, in an interview with MTV, Swizz let music lovers into the process of making the record. In addition to the artists mentioned above, "Q-Tip, Mos Def and the Neptunes' Pharrell Williams," also provided input into the song. Check out this audio of Swizzy talking about how the record came to be, including announcing the remix before it was anywhere close to being done.
