Jeff Bhasker: "That was actually the first song [we did for the album.] I brought the beat and the music. I started the idea and he was like, 'That's hot.' Before that it was a little like, 'Ehh, that sucks.' That was the first one where he was like, 'That's really awesome.' So I brought that music and he brought his editorial to it and then wrote the melody, and said we're gonna get Jeezy on it.
That was the first one where he was like, 'That's really awesome.'
"We were searching for sort of a tribal-ish drum sounds and that just came out. It's a very simple and dark sounding piano figure. A lot of times, it's just getting inspired. Like I said, when he sets those parameters and you're driving down that road, you can hit on something. That's what he's looking for and that was the first track that he was like, 'Yes, thats what I'm looking for.'"
