King L Tells The Story Behind His ‘Yeezus’ Experience


“I had never met Kanye ever, so after the whole shout out thing, people would ask in interviews, “Have you ever met Kanye or spoke to Kanye?” or whatever, and I was like “Nah.” But I always appreciated what he did and so I always spoke highly of him when I was asked about him. I believe two or three months ago [John Monopoly] broke the news to me that I was going to be working with ‘Ye on the album and going to Paris and everything. I was like, ‘Get the fuck out of here.’ Before I knew it though I was going to get my passport, and then I was boarding the flight, and then seven hours later I was in Paris. This was my first time being out the country, so it was, like, an accomplishment for me that way as well. My family, my friends, none of my guys ever been to Paris, so shit, it felt good. I was a nigga in Paris.” [Laughs]
