Sam Harris told Radio.com
about the experience of writing the hit song: "Dude, it is the craziest thing," he said. "I mean, the song just kinda came about with myself and Alex da Kid. He and I are constantly writing stuff. We're always going back and forth. Sometimes he'll send me stuff and I'll write it all on my own. Sometimes he has ideas that he brings to me. This is one of the latter."
"He called me up and said, 'I had an idea to write a song called 'Renegades.' Start writing,'" Harris added.
