Boi-1da has worked with Drake on many of his hit tracks. He was responsible for the track “Mob Ties” from Drake’s album “Scorpion”. Splice connected with the Toronto producer to hear his story about the creation of the song.
When Drake heard the beat, he immediately started writing to it. This was obviously something Drake felt he needed to use.
Allan Ritter provided the guitar melody which Boi-1da sped up and pitched up to change the sound. Boi-1da used a drum pack courtesy of Splice for some of the drums. His elbow accidentally hit the keyboard creating a rapid drum roll that he incorporates is the track. Sometimes mistakes can be gold for a track.
