Kanye West spotted the talent in two producers who make up a duo and won a beat battle competition, 'The Set'.
Kanye West has brought in production duo Wrightwax who won the beat battle competition "The Set". The duo consisting of cousins Deuce and B. Wright are signed to West's G.O.O.D. Music after being acquainted through the label's artist, Big Sean.
"From working with Big Sean, we got a chance to get in the studio with Kanye while he was making the Graduation album and he said he wanted to sign us," Wright told SOHH.com. "We were in Atlanta and he was just playing some of our tracks and in the first ten minutes, he was like 'I wanna sign ya'll,'" Deuce added. "He was listening to our stuff and he turned it down and was like, 'how did you think to do this?' I was just in awe. I mean, it was Kanye West asking me how did I do this."
They are slated to release a mixtape, "featuring several top secret major label artists over their production".
