Fans are pouring their concerns as Jamie Foxx remains in critical condition. He and Kanye West changed the way we received rap music. The two have been one of the oldest friends in the industry who finally collaborated over their famed 2005 song ‘Gold Digger’. While the two knew each other and tried to collaborate on a piece of music, differences in preferences led them nowhere. Despite differences, the end results of Ye’s music have always proven to be successful.

Fans on Twitter dug up an old video of West and Foxx which was included in the jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy documentary by Netflix. It covered the entire journey of West from being a producer to a rapper, right from the early 2000s to today. The clip shows both of them listening to the song they created and grooving over it. It ended up winning several accolades, including Grammy for the Best Rap Solo Performance for the year in 2006.

Foxx has often told the story of how he befriended Ye just to bring his rapping dreams to come alive. That Ye told him to keep things simple and do as he says. Even today, it remains a fan favorite not just for the music but for their unique fun collaboration.

While Ye is busy working on making a comeback, Foxx remains in bad physical health today. Since April, the Django Unchained actor is hospitalized. While the reason is not been revealed yet, the family says the recovery has been slow so far.
