Over the years, Kanye West has earned a reputation for his collaborative process. He’s worked with rising artists like Travi$ Scott, Allan Kingdom, Vic Mensa, and countless other singers, rappers, and producers on the cusp of breakthrough success. To most, it seems like an obvious win-win situation: Kanye stays plugged in with some of the most exciting new creators, and the lesser known artists gain attention and clout.
Young Chop has a different perspective. He’s the Chicago producer behind Chief Keef’s “Don’t Like,” a song Kanye West remixed with Pusha T, Jadakiss, and Big Sean. In a new video, he explains his feelings on the way Kanye works.
He says Kanye will “use you, try to soak up everything n****s know, get you to write songs for him, then don’t call you after that.”
