Me, Franny, and Mally Mall at the crib-o
Drake had the album finished and ready to ship, but during his birthday weekend in Vegas he recorded “The Motto” at DJ Franzen (Franny) & Mally Mall’s studio, hence the shout-out. He loved the song so much he decided to add it to his album as a bonus track.
“Mally Mall” is of course a homage/plagiarism of rap legend Marley Marl, who used to team up with Freddie Foxx.
Mally Mall, by the way, who is now a rapper associated with Tyga, was formerly a Las Vegas entrepreneur of sorts (there’s suspciously little information about his pre-music life available online), but he managed to make enough money prior to rapping to build his own studio in his home, where Drake recorded “The Motto.” In this video, Mally Mall discusses recording with Drake.
