A rare, recently unearthed interview with Kanye West was released by Hypebeast on Tuesday night. The 22-minute interview was filmed in 2013 for the documentary Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton, about Stones Throw Records.


The interview starts with West talking about the late J Dilla, whose music he says, "felt like drugs. His music sounded like good pussy." Other topics discussed in the interview include Motown Records, growing up in Chicago, and the risks that artists have to take.

This is the same interview where it was revealed that West recorded "No More Parties In LA" during recording sessions for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
