The beat was originally intended for Giggs, but the British grime artist didn't take it up. IllaDaProducer explained to Genius
that Giggs is always asking him "for these horror movie beats, so the producer came up with "something mean, gritty, grimy."
IllaDaProducer added that he only thought of sending his beat to Eminem on the morning that MGK dropped "Rap Devil." He explained he was on vacation in Miami celebrating his four placements on Kamikaze
when he saw MGK's diss. Straight away he went into his folder and looked for the "hardest beats possible." After checking with Giggs that he wasn't planning on using the instrumentation he immediately sent it to Eminem.
