Tyga hooks up with rapper Big Sean on his reflective single from his sophomore album, Careless World: Rise of the Last King. The Compton spitter first intended for the song to be a solo affair, but decided there was a spot for Sean at the last minute. "When I made this record, I was just like, 'Sean would be dope on this,'" Tyga told MTV News. "The record was already done - that's why Big Sean is at the end of it. We made the beat longer because I was just like, 'Let's just add him to it.'"
Sean jumped on the song without hesitation. "I had already liked it off the rip, I liked the sample, I liked the vibe of it," he told MTV News. "He sent me the song and it was perfect. I remember I had just got done with my show in Houston. I knocked it out right after."
Sean added that his voice was still hoarse from the performance he'd just delivered. "My voice was half gone - I don't know if people could tell, but my voice was damn near gone when I recorded it," he revealed. "I just came up with the whole thing on the spot."
The song was produced by Toronto beatmaker Boi-1da, whose résumé also includes "Best I Ever Had
" for Drake and "Not Afraid
" for Eminem.
Colin Tilley directed the visual, which was shot in a Lynwood, California warehouse. "The video concept is me leaving stuff behind, like my girl, and then driving the car, then nobody driving the car," Tyga explained to MTV News.
