Just Blaze has crafted some legendary beats for wordsmiths like Jay Z, Eminem and Cam'ron over the course of his career, but this weekend, the famed producer shared two beats that a few of the greats just couldn't get a handle on.
One beat, called "Moleskine Conclusion," was supposed to be the end of Jay Electronica's "Dear Moleskine," but that didn't pan out, and he held onto it because he was "afraid of struggle raps on it."
Just found the unreleased "dear moleskine pt 2" instrumental. *looks at soundcloud account*— Just Blaze (@JustBlaze) February 23, 2015
And then there's "Miracle," which stumped a whole lotta rappers.
"Jay asked me to hold this for him and Jeezy. Ross did something with it. Chris Brown wanted it badly but couldn't find the right vocal flow for it once we got in studio," Blaze wrote on Soundcloud. "Canei wanted to pass it to Cole, but it was held up by someone else who actually cut me a check for it. Then it ended up just sitting, and I was weird about playing it for folks."
"I may do this more often. If you're going to attempt to rap on it, be respectful and rap good."
Fun fact: "miracle" never repeats the same sequence twice. You have to listen to it the whole way down.— Just Blaze (@JustBlaze) February 23, 2015
"Everyone who heard it thought it was amazing but couldn't come up with a song to it lol. Understandable though. There's a LOT going on. S/o to Canei on the godly piano riffs that are different each time throughout the entire track. Man.
Apparently, there's been renewed interest in the beat after he posted it, but Blaze sounds a little nervous about it.
Randomly, that's really what I was thinking. Glorious ascension music. Lol.— Just Blaze (@JustBlaze) February 23, 2015
