Prodigy: “That’s when I really started getting into Kanye, with that “Good Life” and all that shit. That’s when his rhymes started going on another level. He started saying little slick bars and shit. I was like, ‘This nigga’s ill with the shit he saying.’ He just kept the whole fearlessness shit going, as far as what Pharrell did. His fashion, he wasn’t scared to do what he like and say what he likes. Just a certain fearlessness as far as fashion and as far as pushing the envelope with the song production, like how he put songs together. Not just the beat, but the lyrics. The whole production of the song, he really is a genius with that. He’s not scared to try new things. He’ll bring in a rock drummer or a guitarist. He’ll do something different like, Wow that’s ill, yo. He studies music.”
