Never knew this (not sure if Earl Lee or not :ninja: )

Other interesting things in the interview too

During the interview, Cudi tells a familiar tale about Kanye calling him down to Hawaii to the studio. "We were like, 'Oh, it's for Jay, let's talk about that dope boy shit, let's make a theme for that dope boy in the kitchen," he says in the interview. He sings part of one hook around the 6 minute mark:

Cooking up in the kitchen
Young boy had that vision
Had to get with it
Cudi ended up on "Already Home" off of B3 but the specific melody he sings during his OTHERtone interview eventually turned into his hook on Kanye's "Welcome To Heartbreak."

On the 808s & Heartbreak song, he sings:

And my head keeps spinning
I can't stop having these visions
I gotta get with it

"The 808 records came out of doing The Blueprint 3 records," he says on the podcast. "As a matter of fact, when we did "Heartless," [Kanye] just stopped and said, 'No.' I was like, 'No what?' He was like, 'No way. This is my record.' I was like, 'Come on man. Can we just finish the guy's album man?' He was like, 'Nope. I'm doing an album.'"
