Jim Jonsin Says “Nothin’ On You” Was For Lupe

[vodpod id=Video.3563689&w=425&h=350&fv=configParams%3Dvid%253D514517%2526uri%253Dmgid%253Auma%253Avideo%253Amtv.com%253A514517]

With “Nothin’ On You” sitting at number 2 on the charts, producer Jim Jonsin tells 1515, that the Smeezingtons production was originally meant for Lupe Fiasco.

“I was actually working on a session in Chung King [Studios], and [Atlantic Records chairman] Craig Kallman called me during that session with that particular track, to work on it for Lupe Fiasco,” Jonsin told MTV News. “I told Craig, ‘I like the song a lot. It’s a smash and could be somebody’s single. But it’s not Lupe’s record. I need this record for B.o.B. Please give this record to B.o.B.’ I guess they went through whoever they went through, convinced whoever they needed to, and it got to B.o.B.”

    HE’S ABSOLUTELY RITE!!!! LUPE WOULD SOUND SILLY N OUT OF PLACE WIT THAT RECORD!!!! IRONICALLY, JIM JONSIN GOT A GOOD EAR FOR MUSIC EVEN THOU MOST OF HIS PRODUCTION IS CROSSOVER/COMMERCIAL HEAVY!!!!

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

  • money mitch

    His beats are smooth though, even though he looks like hed make some shit for nickelback or something

  • wewgtwe

    Lupe would make the beat boring with himself attempting to singing on the hook

  • Fozzy Bear

    LMAO then “somehow” it got to B.O.B.

    B.O.B. signed with Jim Jonsin under a merger with grand hustle/atlantic.

    I know people believe these magic storeis though

  • thatdude

    as much as i love Lupe.. that shit wouldn’t work out for him. B.O.B did it right.

  • Black McJagger

    if it was the same guy on the hook then I think it would of def been a hit for Lupe

    the hook is what honestly makes that song
