Just Blaze, one of hip-hop’s most iconic producers, usually doesn’t have a hard time finding talent to rap to his beats. But he ran into a road bump with one of his tracks, “Miracle,” when he couldn’t find any artist who could quite do it justice (no pun intended). Some of the world’s biggest artists, including Jay Z, Rick Ross, Chris Brown and Jeezy have all recorded to it, but none were able to bring Just’s vision for the track to life. He decided to release the beat for free to his SoundCloud, perhaps hoping that someone would download it and finally bring the orchestral monster to life.
Jay asked me to hold this for him and Jeezy. Ross did something with it. Chris Brown wanted it badly but couldn’t find the right vocal flow for it once we got in studio. Canei wanted to pass it to Cole, but it was held up by someone else who actually cut me a check for it. Then it ended up just sitting, and I was weird about playing it for folks. Everyone who heard it thought it was amazing but couldn’t come up with a song to it lol. Understandable though. There’s a LOT going on. S/o to Canei on the godly piano riffs that are different each time throughout the entire track. Man..
Listen to the “Miracle” instrumental below.
