[SOHH highlights a hot single each week and offers a unique look at the record. After Young Chris discussed how he got invited to Meek Mill's "House Party," Arkatech Beatz's Jugrnaut gives the scoop on how Alley Boy's "Ain't Loyal" anthem came together.]
We officially did the first batch of records with Alley Boy when he was putting together the Definiton of F*ck Sh*t mixtape. He just has that aggressive feeling of music that we're really into. So we were putting records together with him in mind.
Me and my producing partner Mike "Trauma" D put this "Ain't Loyal" beat together and said, "Hey, we're going to get this to Alley." Mike actually came in from New York and we went to go see Alley in the studio. We decided that record along with a couple others, he really seemed to like them a lot, especially the "Ain't Loyal" one.
It just came together really quickly. The funny thing about making "Ain't Loyal" is that we played him a lot of records but he really gravitated toward that one. He put the hook together immediately on the spot. Listening to hit, he instantly knew, in his head, how he wanted the hook to go. It just comes down to laying it all down.
This record is a little bit different because the other records don't really have what this has. It's kind of a sing-songy hook but it's still kind of aggressive and has him talking about people that are fake and not real, people who are your friends but they're out there snitching and that sort of thing.
It's kind of in the same vein but a little bit different based on the way he decided to hit it.
