*Kanye West has welcomed Mos Def and Kobe Bryant in the studio for his “Power” remix.
“Kobe helped me finish my #Power remix verse…Just building on the concept of [Power] and Mos helped me find the ‘old me’ lyrically,” West wrote on Twitter Sunday morning.
Swizz Beatz eventually joined the party and now are working together on the track, which was supposed to feature Jay-Z. (See photo below.)
“Scheduled studio visits 2day, Nikki [Minaj], John Legend, Mos Def, Swizz Beatz, Pusha T, Phillip Lim,” he added. “Remember jazz musicians used to collab and do 4 song albums or James Brown used to just keep dropping s- back to back,” he wrote. “I might have to put out 5 albums this year … My spirit is full … My heart is open … People want new music … I can’t hold it back.”
