Songfacts®:

  • "I Do It" is a rousing collaboration between Lil Wayne, Big Sean, and Lil Baby. On the track, the three rappers explain that their privileged lifestyles come from their hard work and putting themselves first.
  • Lil Wayne and Big Sean are regular collaborators - "I Do It" was the eighth time they worked together. Their previous hook-ups include two US Top 40 hits: Sean's "Beware" and Weezy's "My Homies Still."

Speaking in a July 2019 XXL interview, Weezy explained that the Atlanta rapper insisted on working with him in a studio rather than swapping files. "We got to do the session together," he said. "We was out here in New York, not long ago. Probably a month ago. It was him, I, and Big Sean."

    Rex Kudo, who has also worked with the likes of Roddy Ricch ("Die Young"), Future and Young Thug ("Patek Water").

    Charlie Handsome, whose resumé includes two Khalid hit songs: the Texan singer's duet with Normani, "Love Lies," and his solo tune "Better."

    Other collaborations between Kudo and Handsome include Post Malone's Stoney track "Go Flex."
