[SOHH highlights a hot single each week and offers a unique look at the record. After Brick Squad Monopoly member Frenchie breaks down his latest track, "Doubt Me", Young Chris discusses how he got invited to Meek Mill's "House Party."]
Me and Meek go back, I'm not sure if y'all know, but we did a joint together on the DJ Drama album called "Lay Low." So that's how we do, we go track for track; I do something for him he does something for me.
I was definitely a house party type dude growing up [laughs], so this song is real. I grew up in Philly and they used to have the lil' house parties right on my block. I wasn't always old enough to get in there but I always made my way in and had a good time, you know?
Man shooting this video was crazy! It was alotta fun. We really made it into a party. We shot it at my man's crib in Atlanta. Yeah, that was really somebody's house in the basement. Bottles, music, girls everything. It was a real party after a while, I'm talkin' about we got there in the daytime and I didn't leave 'til like 7 the next morning. Plus it was cool because Ross was there, Lil Duval, Gotti ... just a whole bunch of people whose work I admire. Shot out to the Twerk Team in that video too, they did their thing for us. Especially the one in the green. I know they gettin' a whole lot of exposure right now off that joint.
Shoutout to my boy Meek though. I feel like Meek been grinding for a minute. Being back home in Philly, we got to see his movement grow from a seed to a plant. The rest of the world caught of fast because it was a quick movement once he got with MMG, sorta like when we came in with Roc-A-Fella when already poppin'.
The groundwork was already there but he been puttin' in work for a minute.
