Producer David “D.A.” Doman caught up with VIBE to talk about his new Young Money single, “Senile”, off the upcoming compilation album “Young Money: Rise Of An Empire”. The track features an exciting roster that consists of Lil Wayne, Tyga and Nicki Minaj.
Doman breaks down to VIBE how the record came to be, how the track made its’ way to Wayne and why he thinks that this is going to be a HUGE record. Check out an excerpt below.
You tweeted that ‘Senile’ is a “new sound” and that “everybody came dope.” Tell me more about what the record sounds like in comparison to what you or Young Money have done before.
It’s is a real hard record. It’s definitely gonna kill the clubs, and I think it’ll do well on radio. I don’t want to give away too much, but it just has kind of like a different sound. It’s got some crazy stuff going on in it. Everybody killed their verses. Tyga brought back that low tone that he’s famous for from ‘Rack City.’ Nicki absolutely murdered her verse too, she came really creative on it. Wayne went just totally crazy on the third verse. It’s definitely an ‘event record.’ You know, when you talk to some radio promoters, they’ll call certain songs ‘event records’ because they’re so many big names on it, it just becomes an event that the radio has to play.
So Wayne is spitting on this?
Yes. Definitely. Wayne is going crazy on it. Wayne is definitely going crazy on it. The thing that I love about this Wayne verse is — I can’t give away who said this, ‘cause I don’t want to step on anyone’s toes — but a certain famous producer heard the record and was like ‘Wow, that’s a whole new Wayne that I haven’t heard before.’ Wayne is spitting hard on the verse, but it’s still fresh. It’s not like this is the Wayne from five years ago, or this is Carter I Wayne. It’s real hard, he’s really spitting, but its fresh.
