As you know, it takes a village to produce a Kanye West album, and Kanye is a stickler for crediting any and everybody who contributed even the smallest flourish to any of his productions. Last night he released the extensive list of production credits for The Life of Pablo, which you can read in full here, but I just wanted to highlight a couple of interesting tidbits.
The Social Experiment’s Donnie Trumpet played on “Ultra Light Beams”
In addition to “Ultra Light Beams,” which he raps on, Chance The Rapper is also credited on “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1,” “Famous” “Feedback” and “Waves.” Word is, there might an alternate version of “Waves” featuring vocals from Chance in the stash.
Havoc co-produced “Famous” with Kanye, Swizz only contributed vocals. Hudson Mohawke, Plain Pat and Mike Dean are also listed as co-producers.
Drake and Pharrell are credited as writers on “30 Hours.” As you probably know, Andre 3000 is also now credited for background vocals on the version that made it to the album.
North and Saint West are both credited as creative consultants
In addition to the credits, Ye also tweeted out a link to a full stream of the album on TIDAL
