During his time away from the game, Kanye West reached out to DJ Premier. Their conversations led to Premo cooking up some beats of West's upcoming album. At the time, Kanye planned for the album to be named Good Ass Job. But, tired of the college-themed albums, Kanye West decided to move on.
Instead, Kanye West decided to go in an entirely different direction with the album. He named the album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. With this change in title, Kanye West changed the direction of the new music. Because of this, a lot of the beats DJ Premier came up with were lost. Premo said he spent a lot of time on most of those beats.
While he said he is hurt by Kanye West scrapping most of the material, DJ Premier says he cannot be upset at him. After all, Kanye West is one of the most creative people he knows and he knows how the creative process can be. When Kanye began to shape the album, the tracks with DJ Premier did not go with the concept. Despite DJ Premier's music not making it on the solo album from Kanye West, some of his stuff will be used for West's Watch the Throne album with Jay-Z.
