10 Famous Beats Rappers Passed On

Pusha T Passed on "Niggas In Paris"


Producer: Hit-Boy

Kanye West has long-time been an admirer of Pusha T's lyrical prowess, so it came as no surprise that he took a vested interest in the Thornton brother and subsequently signed him under the G.O.O.D. Music banner in 2010.

The relationship clearly has its perks, as Pusha has come across a wide array of beats to choose from. However, he turned down one beat, explaining, "I was in demonic rap mode." His manager later described the MC's reaction in receiving the beat: "Pusha said, 'It sounds like a video game. Get that shit out of here!'" That "video game" sound ended up being the Hit-Boy-produced "Niggas In Paris," which Kanye and Jay-Z would virtuously tag-team on Watch The Throne.
