Niggas hustle every day for a beat from Ye
What I do? Turn around gave them beats to Jay

from Kanye West (Ft. Frank Ocean & Jay Z) – Made in America Lyrics on Rap Genius


True enough. This story on the making of The Blueprint points out that Cam'ron was originally working with the Kanye beat that would later become “Izzo (H.O.V.A.)” (and, though it wasn’t a ‘Ye beat, the article points out that Ghostface originally had the “Girls, Girls, Girls” beat — we’d love to hear that track someday!)

Note the similarity to Jay-Z’s line in his 1997 song ‘You must love me’, “All you did was motivate me, don’t let ‘em hold you back, what I do I turned around and I sold you crack”
