My Lady Got Two Men

Album: Southsiders (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Atmosphere DJ/producer Anthony "Ant" Davis came up with this song's concept about a man getting involved with a girl who is already with another guy. Rapper Sean "Slug" Daley recalled to Artist Direct: "He told me the concept and I'm like, 'Yep, you're right. I'm gonna go write that.' To me, it's a beautiful thing that I can tell somebody that. I can tell you that's Ant idea, he told me to write that."

    "So technically he gets credit for the beat and the lyrics on that one in the sense that it was his idea," Slug continued. "I obviously wrote the lyrics, and if I remember correctly, he probably had a few complaints about the original draft and it probably changed. That song is a short first verse and long second verse, and I think that was his idea. I think when I first made it, it was three short verses. Things like that."
