The beat was supplied by Alex Da Kid, the guy who produced "Love The Way You Lie
." It was one of three tracks he helmed that finished up on The Marshall Mathers LP 2
, the other two being the Deluxe Edition bonus tracks, "Wicked Ways" and "Desperation." The British producer explained to Artist Direct
how he worked with Eminem on the record. "When Marshall first started to work on MMLP2
, we discussed his vision for the album and where he wanted to go creatively," he said. "Then I went to work making beats and hooks that I thought would align with this vision and take it to the next level. Every few months or so, we would reconvene and he would pick the tracks he liked and write to them. Sometimes we would redefine the initial idea, but most of the time it stayed pretty true to the demo."
