News of the record comes weeks after DJ Khaled announced his new management deal with Roc Nation.
“I got the new single with Jay Z and Future too. With Khaled,” Southside said. “That shit’s crazy. The beat, I made it with Jake One. I fuck with Jake One. I sample Jake One shit a lot. I made it with Jake One and a dude named G Koop…I just sample people I know and give ’em co-production on it.”
Later in the interview, Southside was asked why he took the production route with his music career, instead of pursuing songwriting. While responding to the question, the Southern beatsmith recalled working with Gucci Mane at the peak of his music career.
“I fell in love with making beats,” he said. “It was fun. I was good at it…I was 19 in the house living with Gucci Mane when he was lit. Can you imagine that…Before ‘Wasted’ I was there. It was different, bro. It was different. I was just trying to capitalize. I used to think like ‘If I can get Gucci on the song, I’m lit.'”
