When we first heard who was lending production to Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy we went bonkers. Word spread that RZA, Pete Rock, DJ Premier and more were part of recording sessions in Hawaii took place. Fast forward: DJ Premier didn't make the cut, Pete Rock ended up on "The Joy," and now, DJ Premier has leaked the beat he submitted to Kanye.

The signature sound is there, but we can see why Yeezy passed on it. Hopefully, Primo gets a spot on Watch The Throne. We know how well he works with Jay-Z. For now, listen to the beat below or when you play Def Jam Rapstar.

DJ Premier "JJ (Jermaine Jackson)"

Fact: That DJ Premier beat that Kanye West turned down is one of the instrumentals in @DefJamRapstar. http://t.co/O429uox1 hour ago via Twitter for Mac
