The producer of Rick Ross’ successful street hit “B.M.F.” recently spoke to Complex.com about how the beat came together. The 19-year old Virginian says when Ross’ people reached out to him via Myspace, he had no idea the song would become a huge hit.
“Actually, I heard ‘B.M.F.’ way after it came out,” he told Complex. “For real, I was working and I ain’t want to be bothered with no Internet, no TV, nothing. People was telling me about the song, but I didn’t hear it. But I heard it a week later. It blew my mind. Then, everybody started hitting me up on Twitter, that’s when I realized. They were saying it was a banger. I knew it was hot but I ain’t know the radio was ready for it because it’s a hard record…” The song was a precursor to another song he produced for Rick Ross, “MC Hammer.”
