DIPLO RECALLS AWKWARD ENCOUNTER WITH DON JAZZY AT A RECORDING SESSION WITH KANYE WEST.
For years, Don Jazzyâ€™s silent and intimidating demeanour has generated sensational speculations including a godfather-esque narrative Don Jazzy himself fueled with a Mafia-style name and resolute reservedness in public.Â And whileÂ his twitter personality has shown he has a softer side with his occasionalÂ stintsÂ of generosity, Diploâ€™s recent feature on TBSâ€™Â â€œStoryvilleâ€Â takes us through his awkward pre-Watch The ThroneÂ encounter with Don Jazzy and Kanye West.
Diploâ€™s work with Chris Brownâ€”presumablyÂ â€œLook At Me Nowâ€â€”had gotten Kanyeâ€™s attention and earned him an invitation toÂ Mercer Hotel where Kanye was havingÂ Watch The ThroneÂ sessions. As he recounts his experience at the hotel, he describes the exact setting youâ€™ll expect to find Kanye in; A bunch of music celebrities, producers and artists and a guy rolling weed. The short animated video has cameos from T.Pain, The Weeknd, Bruno Mars, Lil Wayne, Jay Z andÂ â€œThe Guy From Funâ€.
As Diplo recalls, Kanyeâ€™s tone might have been a bit offensive saying,Â â€œI Want You To Think Of Some Cool Beats But Not The Clown Soundsâ€Â before introducing him to Don Jazzy. And since Don Jazzy was too busy tweeting, his cold-shouldersÂ might have also thrown Diplo off his game because heÂ admits he was a bit nervous.Â Since Diplo has no producer credit toÂ Watch The Throne,Â itâ€™s safe to assume he was as bad as he thought.
