(AllHipHop News) Bobby Shmurda’s “Hot N***a” has become one of the most jacked beats of the summer with numerous rappers adding their vocals to unofficial remixes. While Shmurda and his Shmoney Dance propelled the track into an internet hit, it was actually once tackled by G-Unit’s Lloyd Banks.
The beat’s producer, Jahlil Beats, recently spoke about Banks’ version called “Jackpot.” The Roc Nation associate explains how the track eventually ended up with Shmurda.
Beats told MrBiznessProductions:
I did the record like two years ago – 2012. [Banks] dropped a record called ‘Jackpot’ which was crazy too. But Banks didn’t really do nothing to it. It didn’t even go on his mixtape. I guess he wasn’t rocking with it at that time, so he let the joint go.
Then two years later the kid Bobby Shmurda did something to it. The joint was buzzing on the internet. It’s a young brother from Brooklyn trying to come up, so I’m like, ‘Rock with that joint. Banks didn’t buy the record, so go ahead and do your thing.’ I’m just trying to see another young brother come up and make it in the game, so I gave him the record…
No, he didn’t steal the beat from Banks. Everything was all love, and I gave him my blessing.
Jahlil also revealed he is now working on Shmurda’s upcoming album. The Pennsylvania native previously crafted beats for Lil Wayne, 50 Cent, Fabolous, Diddy, Rick Ross, T.I., Meek Mill, and others.
