Certified Fresh: Mike Will Made It Explains The Making Of “Bandz A Make Her Dance,” “No Lie” & More
“No Lie” – 2 Chainz ft. Drake
"That was my baby. As soon as the beat was done I was like, this sh-t got to go to 2 Chainz. This was right after “Got One.” I went and played it for him. He was like, ‘I got to get a big feature on it. I might have Birdman talking on the hook. This might be my intro. I might have Diddy talking on the hook.' He ended up hitting me at like six in the morning, and was like, ‘Drake just put a hard azz hook and verse on that beat.' He was like, ‘We out of here with this one.'
[2 Chainz] kept telling me about this sh-t for months. I went on the road with him one time and he let me hear it on the bus. I knew it was out of here, because I knew the hook after the first time I heard the song. I told him not to play it anymore because I knew they were going to play the f-ck out of it on the radio. I wanted to be surprised."
