While the record sits high at #2 on the Billboard 200, it is now revealed where the beat orginated: from a stressed out biology student during finals week. Via Pigeons & Planes, a kid by the name of Tank God reveals how exactly the record came to fruition.
He states, “Post Malone was in another studio room close by. We ended up crossing paths and I asked him if I could play some beats. He said, ‘Let’s get weird,’ so I played him that beat and the rest is history.”
This took place in December of 2016, during a full day of finals. With exams on his mind, Tank God went home and sat down to make music, which resulted in three beats. Who knew one of those would turn into a hit single with Post Malone and 21 Savage?
