[22:15] [Rosenberg: First of all shout out to Kanye for making hip-hop so big that when you hear somebody’s traveling to Hawaii, you’re like “oh my god.” So what’s up with this Kanye thing?] Yeah I’m working with him. That’s it, that’s all I could say. [Rosenberg: You went out there to Hawaii?] Yeah, I went out there… He feels like a little brother to me, like my little brother that’s doing it. We got along just fine. He’s definitely hip-hop… [24:10] He takes it to another level. We had these musicians and we did this song. They played around my little raggedy beat and made it real big. [Rosenberg: Did you hear him rhyme?] [Exhales] Yup. I love the way he works. He goes from one room writing rhymes, and then goes to the another room fixing a beat, and then he goes in another room to do something else.
He then talks about wanting to work with Eminem & Jay-Z.
[25:40] [Rosenberg: There’s an Eminem record dropping this year too, have you ever had any contact with Em?] I would love to. I never [met him.] He’s a producer too. [Rosenberg: I feel like he could still benefit from Pete Rock. I love Renegade and all, but I feel like he could still..] I love Eminem, I think he’s one of the dopest. Ever. I started questioning Jay-Z when he got at him on that joint. I take nothing away from Jay, I just thought Em’s verse was incredible. [Rosenberg: Why has there not been a Jay record? I talked to him, I know you’re one of his favorites and yet there’s never been anything. Was there ever going to be anything?] We never worked together, I always wanted to. Actually I gave him a beat that I did for Kurupt, “Yessir”. I was hoping that he used it
