[SOHH highlights a hot record on Tuesdays and offers a unique look at the track in Singled Out. After Chris Webby decoded "Down Right," NFL superstar Asante Samuel's Deepside Ent. protégé Young A.C. breaks down his "Still Do It" anthem.]
I recorded "Still Do It" last year in Atlanta during football season. Asante usually works in the same cities as I do, we work better when we're in the same city. We had a few singles that were out from my last mixtape, hosted by DJ Holiday, and we were just looking for a new tempo.
We were in Atlanta and were trying to find a different sound for me, being from Florida, I have a lot of diverse sounds when it comes to music and so we were just trying to slow it down a little bit because I'm more lyrical and Florida tempo is usually more uptempo.
Fatboi produced the beat and basically while he was making it, I was coming up with my words. By the time he was done bouncing the track, I was done with the song. I made something that everybody could listen to. "Still Do It."
When I pick out instrumentals and original beats, I can tell in the first three or seconds whether I want to listen to it or make a song to it. This was one of those songs. Everybody has a bad chick. As soon as it drops, it is what it is.
