Video: Mr Hudson On Working With Jay-Z on BP3

Ben talks to MTV News about going from singing to simply put food on the table to going on tour with Kanye and working with Jay-Z:

And when West informed Hudson that he would be featured on three songs on Jay-Z’s Blueprint 3 during the interview, Hudson was shocked.

“Am I?” Hudson asked.

“Yeah, well, you have, like, a few,” West replied. “The song ‘Forever Young’ is incredible, and I want you to do a few more. I want you to do the chorus for ‘She’s Like That All the Time.’ Just outright do the chorus.”

Hudson worked with West last summer on a variety of projects including 808s & Heartbreak, but he said the icing on the cake was the fact he appears to have impressed Jay-Z.

“I hope Jay … Jay-Z still likes it. I call him Jay like I’ve met him more than twice, but we flipped [Bob Dylan’s] ‘Forever Young.’ … But to be on a Jay-Z album and a Kanye West album in six months … I’m pinching myself. To be honest, it just does not sink in.”

After the jump, find an interesting quote from Mr. Hudson that might give you an added perspective about some of the things he’s had to go through to get here:

“[People think] ‘He got invited to Hawaii and now he’s on these records.’ I used to sing for my supper in a pizza restaurant in SoHo. I got 50 quid, a bottle of wine or two and a pizza. I learned my chops, so that’s why I have the confidence now to go onstage in front of 50,000 people and do what I do, because I’ve been waiting long enough.”

    Today, my dad got really drunk. When I was about to go to bed, he was just coming out of the bathroom, he was fully naked, I immediately turned away and said “Okay Dad, time for bed”. Thinking that I was my mum, he replied with “That’s right bitch, I’m your daddy, I’ll show you in bed”. FML

    From what I’m hearing so far about BP3, it sounds as if it mature rap album Kingdom Come was supposed to be.

    word – i remember the days when i would play acoustic versions of nirvana songs on a banjo at the local potbelly’s sandwich shop

    i would finish a riveting rendition of “Come…as you are…as you were…as you *scowly growly cobain voice* waaaaaaant meeeeee to be…” and like 7 people would be clapping — half-heartedly — while they tried to eat their subs and milkshakes

    on the strenth i got paid in ham sandwiches — and i don’t even eat ham (smh). i would have to just eat the bread. so now i deserve to be the chea that everyone knows and loves.

    ^^^ fam, there’s been singing in hip-hop at least as far back as sequence putting out “funk you up” in ***1980***

    get a grip. singing has been a part of hip-hop almost the entire time hip-hop has been in recorded form.
