Tell me, what went into creating this song?
I created this song after coming to the realization that I’ve personally never heard an Elvis sample used in hip hop. I wanted to incorporate his legacy into my music. After going through YouTube videos, I found Elvis’ “I Cant Help Falling in Love With You,” and after hearing it sped up, I knew I had a hit on my hands, even before I added drums and claps. As I crafted the beat, I began contemplating the cadence of my flow to it as I finished it.
