Though Khaled has always had a good relationship with Jay Z, it's hard to get him on one guest verse, let alone two. "I play him the record and I'm vibing, you know, I got that eye so I'm looking to the side, I don't want him to know I'm looking, and I see him vibing," Khaled told Rap Radar
. "The first part is an instrumental so that's when I'm really looking because, the great ones, that's when they really just start going so I look and I just see him start rhyming in his head and mumbling…when the beat stopped, he's just like, 'Leave that for me.'"
The next day Khaled got a message from Jay saying that the verse was done and when he arrived, Hova spat the verse live for him. "And then he laid the verse down, I'm ready, I'm good," Khaled recalled. "But he's not done, second verse. I said 'What's going on here, man?' He's like 'I'm getting a second verse. Now, second verse coming out.'"
