Producing for Young Money, Lil Wayne, & Tha Carter IV
Chase N. Cashe: My boy KY [hooked me up with Young Money]. I was working at this studio called Zach’s and KY used to just be coming around a lot so by the time he ended up getting the job with Young Money, he was like, ‘Send me some beats.’
“So I sent him five beats and the exact five beats I sent they ended up using them all. We did ‘New Shit,’ which me and B. Carr carried together and then ‘Pass The Dutch.’ The beat to ‘Drop The World’ happened to be in that bunch as well. And that was was all because of KY.
“One didn’t make the album. It was some shit that Omarion was dancing to on World Star and then they cut him. Dead serious. That would be hilarious if it was true [that they cut him because of the video], but I think it was on some shit like he decided he didn’t want to sign with Young Money no more. But they announced his cutting the day after the video.
“I sent the beats to KY and they liked them. I remember getting hit from KY one day like, ‘Yo what’s your information? You got a joint with Wayne and Eminem.’ And I was like, ‘What?’ But I didn’t know what beat it was. He just told me it sounds like some rock shit and it’s gonna be on Rebirth.
“I’m gonna be honest with you, Wayne doesn’t even know me dog. I’ve done been around him multiple times, but I bet if you asked him who I was or who Hit-Boy was he couldn’t tell you a God damn thing. [Laughs.]
Hit-Boy: “I can’t get into any details, but I may have some things on Tha Carter IV. The ‘Tragedy’ joint that had leaked is not really called ‘Tragedy.’ It’s another joint that might end up on Tha Carter IV, but we’ll see. I did a couple of songs for it.
“That one song that had leaked with the Nicki verse on it actually came through Boi-1da. I had the track and I wanted him to beef it up and send it to Wayne. Wayne rapped on it ASAP. But nobody knows how her verse got leaked.”
