On “Seventeen” there’s that dialogue with the principal, you not wanting to go to class, him threatening you with detention… Right, and that was me, man! And it’s crazy because I feel like taking the Method Man role [on Hulu’s Wu-Tang: An American Saga] played into it, because on the show I’m playing a 19-year old kid, and just me tapping into that, it made me think about my own life. And, who was I at 17? What was my attitude like? What was I saying, what was I going through? You know what I mean?
And shout to Timbaland, he produced the record. Got in the studio with Timbo and we went through a bunch of beats. We might have done eight records, but that one stuck. And he even said, “Yo, I don’t even know you! I mean, I know Dave East, but I don’t know you like that! And you brought me into that.” And also I just wanted my mother to be on it – like the whole waking me up for school thing [on “Way to School”]?

Ant Clemons sat down to talk about working with Kanye West & Timbaland on his latest single ‘4 Letter Word’. “A sudden call to meet West in the studio in Miami led to a session with Timbaland, who unexpectedly appeared as a co-producer on five different Jesus Is King tracks. “Timbaland’s like, ‘Kanye’s been talking about you nonstop, you’re one of his favorite artists, I had to meet you,'” Clemons recalls. The veteran producer later added drums to the singer’s first solo release, “4 Letter Word.”
