So how did White Gold end up on the track? The singer explained to Genius
that he originally recorded "You Gon' Learn" with Royce da 5'9 for the Detroit rapper's album. Half a year later, Royce's manager Kino Childrey called him. Kino said: "Em heard it and was like, 'Yo, I want the record and I want the dude that's on there as the hook.'" It was as simple as that.
White Gold had to keep his contribution secret for around six months, which was "one of the hardest things to do."
