Evian Christ, who co-produced Bruce Jenner's favorite Yeezus track "I'm In It," has been reportedly invited back to the studio to work on Kanye West's"Born In The USA."

"I’ve got to get home and write an Otis Redding–style beat for him," Christ said in a recent interview. "[Kanye] e-mailed last night. He wants something that sounds a bit like Otis Redding, a bit like Mobb Deep." He also said, "Kanye is the one dude who’s like, 'This is not experimental enough. This is too poppy. Make something else. The other guys are like, 'We don’t get it.'"

Christ then confirmed what we were suspecting all along: "Kanye is a dream to work with. No one else gives you that level of creative freedom. When he wants you to work to a blueprint, the blueprint is: 'Don’t make a rap beat. Anything but a rap beat.'"

While we wait for... Yeez-USA? Kan-USA? Christ has shared a new remix of Young Thug's "Stoner," and to our ears it sounds like a long lost Yeezus track. Listen below and download an mp3 here.
