Last year, Illmind had the opportunity to contribute to Kanye’s Good Music Cruel Summer project. That placement has led to the following mini-album of instrumentals and beats that Illmind had created with Mr. West in mind. It’s every so appropriately titled !.B.F.K.W. aka !llmind Beats for Kanye West. There’s a total of 8 tracks on this release and it shows why Illmind is one of the most consistent veteran producers doing it right now. You can download the project in it’s entirety, here.

“Kanye West is undoubtedly one of the most exciting producer/artists to emerge in the last decade. His music is one of the few I can safely say I whole-heartedly admire (next to the late great J. Dilla). I had the pleasure of producing “The Morning” off of 2012’s highly anticipated “Kanye West Presents: G.O.O.D. Music Cruel Summer” LP. During the creation of that song, and between the months of July 2012 – March 2013, I created a handful of tracks with Kanye West in mind. This is a collection of some of that music. It features collaborations and co-production from my long time friend Symbolyc One (Produced Kanye West’s “Power”, “Murder 2 Excellence” on Watch The Throne & part of Kanye’s “Very G.O.O.D. Beats” entity), Dr. Know Jr., M31RK, Hippie Sabotage, Kailiin Yong &The Frontrunnerz. I had so much fun creating this stuff, and I hope you enjoy it just as much as I do.” – !llmind
