(AllHipHop News) Last month, Lil Baby announced the winners of the inaugural “Spark The Beat” contest with Doritos. Phoenix rapper Ali Tomineek and Atlanta producer Rashad “Shad On The Beat” Jackson won the chance to record a song with the Quality Control artist.
The result of the in-studio collaboration is a track titled "Toast Up." Lil Baby opened up the song with Tomineek presenting the second verse. Shad handled the production.
"When I started going through [the contestants] and a lot of stuff was similar, I started looking for things that stood out, someone who was different," Baby explained to AllHipHop in October. He added, "When I sent them the song, it was on another beat so we re-recorded the song on the new beat - my version and the new vocals."
Ali Tomineek also gained international exposure by making it to the Final 8 on Netflix's Hip Hop competition series Rhythm + Flow. Rashad Jackson has previous production credits with Chief Keef, Glo Gang, and Capital T.
