General

Album: The Art of Hustle (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • Yo Gotti is leader of Collective Music Group, making him a general. He explained to Genius that with great power comes great responsibility: "You're a general if you're a boss, if you're feeding the team, if you've got a plan to get to the money."
  • Future raps the second verse. Gotti said: "Me and Future actually locked in the studio for two or three days and just went in. We recorded a lot of records, 'General' was one of them. I put it on the album because it was one of my favorite joints. We kinda both went in the booth, we had the music and the producer, the beat came on, and we just go in. We don't write the music, it's all just what you go in the booth and do."
