Kanye West

In an up-coming interview with HHNLive.com, "Flashing Lights" producer Eric Hudson tells the story behind Kanye's monster hit and who the beat was originally intended for.

Eric Hudson on how the collaboration went down:

"I was in one studio and he was in another one [close by], and we had an initial respect for each and a good relationship from some of the other joints that I had produced. I heard he was in the other studio so I just went by to say what’s up. You hear Kanye’s in the studio and you’re going to go say something! So we was in the room and he was like, “yo, you got a joint? My album’s closed, but if you can give me that one banger I’ll put it on there if it’s crazy.” So I start wonder, do I got CDs on me? And by the grace of God I had that beat man. He came into the other room and I played it for him. He listened to the beat for about ten seconds man…the beat didn’t even drop totally. He took it, put it in Pro Tools and did the song right then and there...He wrote it right there. He freestyled it and then next I’m hearing he went and put the “flashin’…lights, lights,” he put that on there..."

Eric Hudson on who the "Flashing Lights" beat was originally intended for:

"Yo, I had originally did that beat for Beanie Sigel. To me it could have been an R&B joint or a rap joint, but I had intended for it to be a rap joint."
