Just Blaze Talks Working With Jeezy, T.I. & Rick Ross
While the veteran super-producer has gained a lot of recent buzz for his work with Jay Electronica and Eminem, he reveals a handful of southern rappers have been graced by his production touch.
As one of Hip-Hop’s most sought-after producers, Just Blaze recently revealed on DJ Tony Touch’s radio show “Toca Tuesdays” that he’s working with three of the South’s biggest rappers.
Stating he has given the self-proclaimed “King of the South” four beats for his new album as well as done some work for a separate project involving T.I., Just Blaze explained, “I was just in Atlanta with Tip. I don’t want to give too much details about that out because it’s kind of an event that we’re doing.”
Moving to his work with the Snowman, he continued, “I got a record with Jeezy that’s super duper crazy. I think it’s something that a lot of people really ain’t gonna expect from him sound wise; it’s nothing he’s ever done before.”
Finally, Just Blaze said he’s planning something with The Boss, with him possibly making an appearance on Teflon Don, due out June 29. “I spoke with Khaled about going in with Rick Ross…This will be the first time we actually go in and connect and put something down. I’m looking forward to that.”
While the work with Ross and Jeezy are firsts for Just Blaze, he has made previous appearances on albums with T.I., including 2008’s chart-topping single “Live Your Life” featuring Rihanna off Paper Trail.
