Yung Joc recently shared a story with DJ Smallz about passing on a beat made by Pharrell, which was later picked up by Jay-Z for ‘Blue Magic’. The Atlanta emcee explained that he got in the studio with Pharrell, who played him a beat that he wasn’t quite feeling. Joc said that Diddy joined them for the session, along with Jay-Z, who instantly fell in love with the beat.
The “Features” emcee said everyone in the studio was vibing over the beat, which Jay said he would love to have if Yung Joc wasn’t going to use it. After thinking that Jay and Pharrell were in on a clever ploy to get him to take the beat, Yung Joc said he ultimately passed it to Jay. Fast forward a few months and the Atlanta spitter heard the beat on “Blue Magic,” and you can check out his full reaction below.
Jay-Z – Blue Magic (Official Video) (2007)
Since Jay-Z started TIDAL, he made an Official Video to his 3 year old tune ‘Glory’ dedicated to his daughter ‘Blue Ivy’, check it out above.
The ‘Happy‘ star spoke to GQ Style magazine about his recent success. With pretty much the whole world at his feet having had the biggest selling single of the last few years, you could perhaps excuse Pharrell Williams for being immodest. But in a new interview he was very humble when comparing himself to one of his musical idols Jay-Z.
Speaking with Germany’s GQ Style magazine, the 41 year old said he would “sound braggy” if he were to rap like Jay-Z and use the same lyrics that he does. He believes that all artists should find their own style and that imitating someone else is unlikely to pay off. “I think you have to create something new. You can’t just copy the style of others. If I would sing Jay Z’s lyrics, I would sound braggy, while he inspires people with his songs. Everybody has to find their own style.”
