Pusha T originally had the beat for Jay Z and Kanye West‘s “N*ggas In Paris” first but he passed on it. The beat was produced by Hit-Boy.
In an interview with AskMen, Pusha T’s manager Steven Victor detailed Pusha’s reaction when he first got the beat,
“Pusha said, ‘It sounds like a video game. Get that shit out of here!'” That “video game” sound ended up being the Hit-Boy-produced “Niggas In Paris,” which Kanye and Jay-Z would virtuously tag-team on Watch The Throne.”
