“He set up a mood…” – When Chris Rock Worked With Kanye West

When we talk about the greatest musicians of this generation, one can’t not name Kanye West. We are all aware of the controversies that surround Ye. However, if we separate the art from the artist, there is no denying the fact that Ye is an incredibly creative musician. The Flashing Lights hitmaker has influenced countless rappers and singers over the years. And working alongside Ye has always been a dream for many. However, Chris Rock was lucky enough to witness Kanye record one of his most iconic albums. And unsurprisingly, the comedian was in awe as he opened up about his experience previously.

We are no strangers to the fact that Ye has always been very experimental with his music and fashion. Keeping aside his controversies, we all know how extremely devoted he is to his art. And Chris Rock confirmed the same in an interview. Rock was present in the studio while West recorded My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. The comedian was full of praise for the rapper.

During his appearance on Sway’s Universe, Rock revealed that Ye was living it while he recorded the album. Recalling his experience, he continued, “He set up a mood. Right when you walked in there you felt this mood.”

Apparently, Rock was in the studio while Ye was working on the popular song from the album Blame Game. Elsewhere in the interview, the Amsterdam star made some interesting revelations as well. As per Rock, everybody in the studio was all dressed up prim and proper. Interestingly, almost everybody was wearing black suits.

And even after all these years, it seems like the comedian is still a fan of Ye.
