For the record: Kanye has stated that Brian "All Day" Miller made the beat for "Down and Out." However, 'Ye still got the producer credit, and there's no telling how much he added and touched up after All Day handed him the instrumental. Kanye did make the beat for "Forever," also on Purple Haze. His use of sped-up vocal samples from Chuck Cissel's "Forever" were great on that record, but nothing is touching "Down and Out."
