Producer: Black Milk

Royce Da 5’9”: “When we did ‘Losing Out,’ things were cool for me in the city at that point. That whole dark period was only a two or three-year period. That definitely was a good moment in Detroit.

“I remember when he first sent it to me he was like, ‘I got this joint I need you to get on.’ He emailed it to me and I heard it and was like, ‘Yeah, this is definitely going to be one.’ I went and did my vocals immediately.

“Black Milk was making a lot of noise in Detroit and his buzz was really moving fast. But his manager’s actually a real good friend of mine, Hex Murda. Hex actually hit me up like, ‘Yo Black’s got this record,’ and that was the first record we did together. I don’t remember what it’s called. But that’s when me and Black developed our own relationship. So when it came to ‘Losing Out’ he was already calling me direct to do songs.”
