The track was inspired by the rituals he's witnessed of "traditional wrestlers," with the rest of his upcoming MUDBOY project following similarly featureless approach. "I kind of want MUDBOY to just be only Sheck Wes and MUDBOY is going to talk about how I became a MUDBOY," he told Zane Lowe Monday. "A MUDBOY is just somebody who came from nothing, you know, who turned nothing into something. You know, when I was in Africa, in the rain, I walk around in, like, mud, you know, the sand would turn to mud and you are not getting out of that."
Naturally, Lowe had to sneak in a question about recent Kanye West happenings in Wyoming. "I was supposed to go to Wyoming," Wes said. "It's crazy, I was talking to Trav about it yesterday. I just came from London a little bit too late, because I had a lot of stuff to do out there. I don't know, I might still try to go out there." Wes also discussed how West qualifies as a "weird basketball player." Catch the full discussion above.
In February, Wes dropped the Tyler Ross-directed video for his Mohamed Bamba-referencing "Mo Bamba."
That same day, he announced his deal with Cactus Jack:
MUDBOY is due this spring.
