Blake also discussed Drake's 2014 track "0 to 100/The Catch Up." (An early version of the track featured a Blake sample, but it was cut from the retail release.)

I sent them some stuff just hoping to just do a collaboration of some kind. And I got an email the day before"0 to 100/The Catch Up" came out. And it just said, hey we're using this beat you made from like four years ago. I only sent it as a collaborative idea, not to be sampled on a record. Hey we're using this. Just quickly send me your approval so we can just put it out. I was like no, so I got them to take it off.

I remember having a conversation with my publisher later, and saying: What did you think of that decision? Because you know that was a massive album. I asked how much money exactly I turned down by doing that. I spat out my drink. But I could have made far more money if I had taken certain opportunities, or gone to the right parties. And actually, I a little bit regretted, because it is good, it sounds good on the track. I just did it as a matter of principle at the time. I really liked it. And I think had they come to me beforehand and said we really want to use this what do you think I probably would have said yes.

Just because someone has an impressive amount of clout and a global platform, I don't give a shit about that, I just want to make good music with people. And it was good music. But just ask me. And you know I'm over it. If anything, I could actually do with the track being out, I did like it, but I don't regret the decision. For anybody who wondered why a version of that came out and then never made it to the record, that's why.

Damn... why they do James Blake like that though. "Hey, we made this. We putting it out. Ok?". Little more respect maybe and seems what he hinting on.


Collab would have been sick. Especially on IYRTITL with that sound. James Blake would have fitted in nicely with his vocals on a couple of songs...
