Ski Beatz Threw An Unreleased JAY-Z Album & Big L Collaborations

"I wasn't even thinking."

The world will never listen to a JAY-Z album that was recorded prior to his iconic debut, Reasonable Doubt.

In a new interview with DJBooth, Ski Beatz revealed he threw a previously unreleased LP from Hov and some tracks with the late Big L. The acclaimed producer of the trash after you make a change in their recording technology.

"The whole time I was working for [Large] L, that is when it happened," he said. "No one listened to the songs, and I did all those songs on ADAT (audio tapes). Around that time, that when the Pro Tools and all the equipment of the thing began to come into play. I was not even thinking in the future... Any ADATs had, only I got rid of all my ADATs and entered the world of computing. I didn't make it [copies] of anything that we did."

Ski remembered the fate of the unheard Hov record and admitted some of the collaborations with the Camp, I have It in the can.

"That goes for a lot of JAY-Z Before Reasonable Doubt, we had a whole album that we did, that nobody has ever heard," he continued. "What I did on ADAT, and when I got rid of all the ADAT, I got rid of all the Big L stuff, all of JAY-Z things. Yet unpublished Camp music. I wasn't even thinking."

Ski produced multiple tracks on JAY-Z's Reasonable Doubt, including "Dead Presidents II" and "22 Two." He also handled all the production for the Camp's debut, uptown Saturday Night.
