The track was originally recorded for a joint album by YG and Nipsey Hussle.
"'FDT' was for the YG and Nip Hussle album, and you heard how crazy that s--t came out?" Nipsey told Billboard
. "He put that on the album and was like, 'F--k that, I'm done.' And I understand that. Those sessions were sessions for the collab project. We went into Mustard's studio every day. Young Thug came through. A lot of songs that wound up on different projects happened in there."
