The rumors were true: Kanye West did indeed record a “Black Skinhead” remix with Miley Cyrus. The collaboration was confirmed by Cyrus’ producer Mike Will, who told RapFix Live’s Sway Calloway that he, Cyrus, and West went straight into the studio following last month’s MTV Video Music Awards. “It’s about done, we’re just touching the beat up a little bit,” he explained. “It’s sounding crazy.”
Sway also asked Will about West’s reaction to Cyrus’ now-infamous performance at the VMAs, to which he replied: “He told her she did it right, too. Ye is someone who understands. I think someone who understands isn’t going to have anything to say about the performance.” In related news, Will is the latest spokesman for Old Spice.
Below, watch the video for the original version of Kanye’s “Black Skinhead”, which appeared on his latest opus, Yeezus.
