Editor’s Note: This interview was conducted before the tragic death of Yung Berg’s manager, Christopher “Cam” Martin on August 6. We offer sincere condolences to Yung Berg and Cam’s entire family.
(AllHipHop News) Yung Berg recently spoke with AllHipHop.com about creating one of this year’s summer anthems, “Snapbacks and Tattoos”, which has almost gone gold.
“The ‘Snapbacks and Tattoos’ beat, I originally thought Big Sean should have had the record. We changed the beat like seven different times,” Yung Berg told AllHipHop.com. “The thing was, I didn’t know what to do with it. I cut a mixtape verse to it – I didn’t like it. So, I played it on my TV for Driicky when he was in Miami, and the rest is history. He left with the beat.”
According to Yung Berg, the record draws comparison to one of his last major hits and helped Driicky land a cushiony deal with indie record label eOne Music.
“This is one of them moments where I feel like, man, ‘Sexy Lady’ was a two-track [production]. That s**t still isn’t tracked out. ‘Snapbacks and Tattoos’, the one you hear is a two-track. I still haven’t mixed the record. I haven’t got a chance to spread it across the board, but when it happens organically, and with God working…shout out to Soulja Boy. Me and him have a remix joint over the ‘Snapbacks’.”
