This is S-1 (Credits: Kanye West, Beyoncé) and J-Rhodes (Credits: The Game, Slim Thug, Talib Kweli) working on the beat for “Welcome to America”.
Honestly, when I saw them in their element working so closely on the beat to this song, it was very humbling.
I started noticing that every artist involved took this project so seriously and focused so much on the details. It started feeling like an olympic torch that was passed from S-1/J-Rhodes to Lecrae and then eventually to me.
This song/video ended up being so personal to all of us and that’s what a true collaboration should look like, everyone brought their A-game.
