We made "I Hit It First" probably last August. We were in the studio and just working on new music and basically me and Ray J did that song last August and it took up until now for the whole song to come out.
We made the song a while ago and it just finally came out.
We got together and did the whole thing in the studio. We did this at my boy [producer] Nic - Nac's house about last August. When we made it, we knew it had the potential to be a really big song. It took a while to get it out but it's because they wanted to make sure it impacted right.
They just wanted to make sure that everything was set-up properly for the song. We knew it had the potential to be a big song so we didn't want to just throw it out there and see what happens. We wanted to make sure all of the bases were covered.
The music video was hella fun. I had a bunch of my homegirls come. We were just having a good time, chilling. It was a nice sunny day. Everyone was excited about the song, so the music video was fun, creating and trying to have fun and making sure everything came out right.
