Album: Luv Is Rage 2 (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • This Luv Is Rage 2 bonus track features Da Honorable C.N.O.T.E (Migos' "Supastars") on the sonics. The producer recalled the story behind his beat to Billboard:

    "We came off of 1017 vs The World and he told me he was working on his album and anted some beats for it. I started sending him beats and he was recording to a lot of them. I'm thinking he's really f---ing with me so I'm going to make some bomb-ass s--t. We had this song 'Change My Phone' that everyone really liked off 1017 vs The World - that's me really studying synths. I just want to be different, so I went back to that same synth and started messing with that patch.

    I feel like it was for an '80s rock band and I put the drums behind it and that loop was so good I didn't want to break it down. I let [Uzi] spazz out on it. That's a three-minute loop. I wanted to change some s--t with it, but he wanted it just like that. You never know what's going to work. Sometimes I overthink s--t as a producer, but I'm learning to let things go the way they belong."
