[SOHH highlights a hot record every week and offers a behind-the-scenes look at the smash in Singled Out. After Tee Stunna broke down his “Early In The Morning” banger, hip-hop artist Joe Young dissects his Drag-On “Check” freestyle.]
The “Check” freestyle really came about from me and Drag-On speaking on Twitter for a few days and he sent me his number through the DM.
We chopped it up and we kind of felt each other’s vibes, no h*mo, and we initially put together this “John Gotti” record. It was real smooth and we put it together in about three days.
We had that whole joint knocked out and done.
We put that out there, it got a great response, people f*cked with it and liked the joint. DJ Kay Slay on [New York’s] Hot 97 spun the record. Shout-out to Kay Slay.
After that, we just decided since the people were f*cking with it, why not do another joint called “Check” on the Meek Mill beat. That was a freestyle record.
We put that sh*t on the AudioMack, got on the phone like, ‘What are we going to do?’ and we figured we’d just put it together like a package for the people.
We did a couple tracks and put them out. We just put that joint out to let people f*ck with it and we’re just going to see how we’re going to take it from there.
Drag-On is working on his next mixtape and I’m putting my own thing together right now, so our schedules got a little busy. That’s the only two records did right now. I think we’re going to do some more records in the future.
