Meaning

Hollis is better known as one of the best producers in the rap game, Hit-Boy. He speaks on the track here:

I met Kendrick in New York at SOBs a couple years ago. He had just started getting a buzz. We chopped it up a little bit but we just kept building from there. Then he ended up signing to Interscope, and I have an in with some people over there, so they always wanted me to work with him.

We had this other record down that we did last year. We went out to Vegas and vibed and I just thought he was going to be using that joint. He was like he couldn’t get the hook right in his mind, so that song got deaded.

It’s a turnt-up joint with energy. That’s what I’m getting known for with records like ‘Niggas In Paris,’ ‘Clique,’ and ‘Cold,’ having that energy and that youthfulness to my sound. My goal is always to bring the super-producer era back. I feel like I’m one of the few people who really cares about everything from my style to how I dress to my social networking. The kids really look up to what I’m doing and I got to hold up to that.
