Did you have any idea that “We Made It” would take off the way it did? Man. To be honest, I did not know. When I came up with the concept I thought it was dope, and that was really about it. Now its everywhere.

You mentioned there were plans to do a video with Drake, is that still coming? The video’s still coming. I had got locked up. I had a case I was fighting at the time. But the video’s still coming, everybody look out for that visual with me and Drake.

We saw you were in the studio recently with Justin Bieber. What were y’all working on? We was working on his new album and doing some stuff for the Carter V. We was down in Miami for a couple nights. Every night we was in the studio doing different stuff.

How were those sessions? What was Bieber’s vibe like? It was just me Bieber and Wayne. Bieber played me his album, I played him some stuff that I had, then we came up with this one record that was crazy. The vibe was cool, everybody was in their creative zone. We all were pushing each other to come up with the best sound for Carter V and the best sound of summer.

So did you have that hook already, or did you and Nicki link and make the song together? I had the beat and everything, we went to the studio and she killed it. The first day, soon as she heard the beat she killed it. And she put it out like the next day.

It sounded like you were in the studio earlier. What are you working on currently? I’m working on Diddy’s project right now. He’s doing his last album right now, it’s called Money Making Mitch. That’s been taking up a lot of my focus. So is the Carter V. When I was in Miami I did like two beats for CV, and I just been tryna go back in on them beats and make them the best for Tune. And Nicki’s joint, The Pink Print is dropping. Her new song “Yasss Bish,” I produced that and wrote the hook. I think that record is gonna be so big for her.
