Steve Aoki is one of the most talented DJs in the world, but even the most experienced performers sometimes fail to take the opportunity.
In a recent interview with Emmy Award-winning journalist Graham Bensinger, Aoki shared a story about a remix for Kanye West that will never see the light of day. He remembers listening to a freestyle from West over the phone and later being sent stems to remix a song. However, Aoki was stunned when he realized the song featured verses from the likes of West, Drake, Eminem and Lil Wayne.
As many may have deduced, this was probably a remix of the mega collaboration ‘Forever’. Unfortunately, it never saw the light of day. Aoki himself didn’t think the remix was good enough, but being able to remix it today would be a whole different story.
Watch the clip of their interview below.
Aoki and Bensinger’s full interview is scheduled for this weekend, where they’ll discuss the former’s future family plans, the bane of having tinnitus, encourage his family to get cryogenically frozen, and more. Find out where you can watch it here.
