Did Joaquin Phoenix lie to Kanye about producing Pusha’s album intro?Today XXL breaks the story that Joaquin actually passed the beat along from his boy’s son who made it in Garage Band (I’m speculating).
“While it was widely reported that Pusha T used my beat and that I produced his song, I can’t take any credit,” he said. ”A friend’s son played me his music, and all I did was make an introduction to Kanye’s camp.”
Everybody knows Phoenix likes to fuck with people’s heads. Maybe he’s fucking with us now? If I remember correctly, Kanye corroborated Pusha’s original story about Joaquin producing the beat during his Zane Lowe interview, so I would gather that he actually did believe that the actor produced the beat. I guess the next question would be: who is this anonymous kid who’s making top tier beats with no credit?
