DJ Whoo Kid has been sitting down with ThisIs50.com and host Jack Thriller over the past several weeks for a series of videos in which he speaks incidents throughout his journey in the entertainment biz that have been untold … until now. Previously, Whoo Kid spoke about being chased out of a Los Angeles nightclub by Suge Knight … and this week, discusses working with Kanye West the night of his infamous car crash that sent the hip-hop star to the hospital and served as the topic of his breakout single, “Through The Wire.”
In the interview clip, the G-Unit DJ details the evening of that fateful night. According to Whoo Kid, Kanye West was in a Los Angeles studio providing a beat for a track Ludacris was to spit on for one of the DJ’s mixtapes. But, Ye had other plans — he was still unknown as a solo artist, so he was trying to impress Luda with his skills.
This put a wrench into Whoo Kid’s evening, because Luda wasn’t trying to hear it. He wanted to lay down the verse and leave, but Kanye wasn’t holding things up. So, the DJ admits to blowing smoke of the Chicago star’s ass, telling him how dope he was and wanted to do a video interview … just so he could get him out of them.
During the interview, Kanye predicted his success and all the things he would do waaaay before it happened — from working on a collabo album with Jay-Z to being a trendsetter in fashion.
When he left, he sped off recklessly, and ended up getting into a serious car accident, and the rest is history. Life’s a trip, isn’t it?
