Chicago native D.A. Doman (Chris Brown's "Privacy
") created the beat. A frequent Tyga collaborator, Doman told DJ Booth
that after creating the instrumentation pretty quickly, he sent it to the rapper, who immediately gave it the thumbs up.
Doman was in his car with his wife back in Chicago when Tyga texted an unmixed version of "Taste" back to him and both the producer and Mrs. Doman immediately recognized as a potential smash.
When Tyga sent Doman a mixed version of "Taste" a while later, the producer suggested getting a feature from either Offset or another (unnamed) rapper. Tyga sent the record to Offset, who immediately agreed to contribute a guest verse.
