The song's soundscape was supplied by up-and-coming beatmaster DJ Dahi, with help from YMCMB producer Detail. Dahi was previously best known for his work on "Money Trees
" from Kendrick Lamar's good kid, m.A.A.d city
album. He didn't get to see Drake lay his verses over his frantic instrumentation or Detail adding the Auto-Tuned ad-libs, but the young producer told MTV News that he was impressed with how it all turned out.
"I feel like I got a lucky one because usually you just want to be in the process of the record, but at least I had a great foundation so when Drake had it and Detail did what he did to the joint it kind of just came together," Dahi said. "He was tellin' me that he needed something... that was going to be a different format for him. The process of him making the record was liberating, vindicating in some sense and it's cool to a part of that."
