[SOHH highlights a hot record each Tuesday and offers a unique look at the track in Singled Out. After Lecrae explained his new "Mayday" track, Memphis rapper Lil Wyte breaks down his Young Buck-featured "All Kinda Drugs" smash.]
I got my producer out from Georgia, he's one of my in-house producers and he sends me all of these tracks and I remember hooking up with Young Buck's manager who I've known for years out in Nashville.
I hit up Buck like, "Yo, what's up man? I'm working on this album and have this killer a** track" and me and Buck have known each other since I've been on Hypnotize Minds. We've known each other for a long time and we've always been cool. We're both from Tennessee and I'm like the little brother from Three 6 Mafia, so we're all pretty close.
When I was out shooting a music video, me and Buck got into a truck and just started listening to beats. We were talking about how all of our fans love to come out to our shows and they're always on all kinda drugs. Guys and girls are drunk, everybody is having fun and everybody is laughing.
We came up with the hook, me and Buck put down our verses and I had Lil Will, we pretty much hooked up over Twitter. We kind of just brought up the fact we were doing the song and thought we should try to get a hold of him.
I've always wanted to do some music with Young Buck even before the G-Unit days and really before any of that. I've always looked at Buck as a very talented artist.
When the quick-rapping, crunk to the core Lil Wyte first came to the attention of the Three 6 Mafia it was with an all-white group of which Wyte was a member. The group fell apart but the Memphis-based Wyte was too skilled to be stopped. Three 6 Mafia members Juicy J and DJ Paul signed the under-21 rapper immediately after the group's disbanding and soon were working on his debut. Doubt Me Now appeared in 2003 and became a word-of-mouth hit among crunk and Southern rap's hardcore fans. Wyte's "Smoking Song" started to appear on numerous street-level mixtapes and Internet message boards were filled with Wyte talk.
