This is one of three What a Time to Be Alive
tracks (along with "I'm a Plug" and "Jersey") that Southside co-produced. The Atlanta-based beatmaker was behind much of Future's DS2
album, including the hit cut "Commas
" (with DJ Spinz).
Southside told MTV News that it was through Future that his work on What A Time To Be Alive
began. "Me and Metro [Boomin] made the 'Digital Dash' beat while we were on tour and sent it to Future," he recalled. "We got in the studio with [Drake and Future], and it was history from then on. They were working so fast and so consistent that you might miss a song getting recorded. I actually didn't hear 'I'm The Plug' until two days later."
