Nicki Minaj, Swizz Beatz Pusha T On Kanye Remix

Posted By on August 16, 2010

      Rappers like Young Money's Nicki Minaj, hit producer Swizz Beatz and The Clipse's own Pusha T are expected to be on the upcoming "Power" remix, Kanye's new single. Names like Mos Def and John Legend are even being talked about being on the new version.

      "Scheduled studio visits 2day, Nikki [Minaj], John Legend, Mos Def, Swizz Beatz, Pusha T, Phillip Lim," Kanye wrote of a remix session that roped in everyone from the newlywed producer he has called one of the greatest of all time (Beatz), to Clipse member T and piano man Legend. He likened the sessions to the all-star power summits of the early jazz era, writing, "remember jazz musicians used to collab and do 4 song albums or James Brown used to just keep dropping sh– back to back." In that spirit, West added, "I might have to put out 5 albums this year … My spirit is full … My heart is open … People want new music … I can't hold it back."
