This might be the greatest tweet of all time fam!
Thanks to the Only Hip Hop Facts twitter account, the now self-proclaimed genius, Kanye West takes us down memory lane and revisits the studio magic that happened when Ye played Jay Z the Izzo (H.O.V.A.) beat.
In the short two-minute clip, West shares the iconic story of Sean Carter hearing one of the first instrumentals that placed Kanye in the running for becoming one of the most sought-out producers, and took Jay Z’s career to another level.
And while the two rappers may have some drama in 2017, the timeless moment in this video is all that matters. From the throwback video, Kanye shares:
Maybe about two or three mins later, he taps me on the shoulder and say: ‘H. to the izzo, V to the izza. For shizzle, my nizzle used to dribble down in VA…’ OOOHH. So I went to the bathroom right. I called my mom, I said “Mom, we ’bout to make it! We really gonna to make it this time. We about to be on now!
