The good folks from the VIBEhttp://www.vibe.com/video/dj-premier-says-kanye-collaboration-never-materialized-adds-last-minute-scratches-mamas-boyfri caught up with Dj Premier yesterday at his Headquarterz Studio. The producer explains how he was able to put his signature scratches on Kanye’s iTunes bonus cut, “Mama’s Boyfriend”, a few days before the turn in date.

“[Kanye] actually hit me the day before he had to turn the album in to do some scratches on a song called ‘Mama’s [Boyfriend],’” Premier says of a record West debuted a capella this summer at the Facebook headquarters. “We just did it like five or six days ago… They sent me a private hard drive. I had to know certain passwords and go through all these steps to get the song. Kanye even sent me an email saying ‘destroy all the roughs I sent you.’”
