A-Trak opens up to VladTV about how he became Kanye’s DJ, and explains that they met while he was spinning at the same club in London that the Roc-A-Fella crew were partying. He says that after playing a Jay Z track Kanye approached him and they bonded over a Jay Z track that the Fools Gold CEO played.
After joining Kanye on tour, A-Trak shares a story about how he changed the Chicago rapper’s smash hit “Gold Digger.” The famed DJ says that after hearing the first cut on the song, he thought there should be some scratching on the track. Unfortunately, Kanye’s budget was tapped out for the album, but after hearing A-Trak’s version live at a concert, he was able to get in on the recording.
