Vocalist Tony Williams gives us an installment of his series Road to King or the Fool, premiered by The Source. In this video we get a rare look into the making of Kanye West’s Graduation album, with cuts like “Champion,” “Barry Bonds,” “Flashing Lights” and “Big Brother.” Tony reflects on the latter, revealing the emotion evoked in Jay-Z when the song was played in the studio.

“Jay kinda got emotional about it. You hear the song somebody talking about ‘my big brother’ and how you influenced me and stuff, it was an emotional moment in the studio.”
