Hip-hop heads, did you know that the reason why Kanye West went in on “Gorgeous” was because No ID goaded him about Jay Electronica?

During an interview with Complex about the stories behind his classic records, making of “Gorgeous,” No ID revealed that it was during the time that they were creating “Gorgeous” when Jay Electronica dropped “Exhibit C” to incredible response.

“That was right around the time when Jay Electronica dropped ‘Exhibit C’ and I remember I said ‘Jay Electronica is the new guy, he’s dope,’ and Ye was real mad, like, ‘What? I’m the guy, I’m the guy’ and he went in and spazzed out on it.
