Mike Will Made It discusses making Lil Wayne’s hit single ‘Good Kush and Alcohol,’ and reveals that the song was originally made for DJ Khaled.
With Lil Wayne’s I Am Not A Human Being II album set to release next month, the Young Money captain has been dropping a slew of singles over the past few weeks including the hit single Good Kush and Alcohol featuring both Drake and Future on the chorus.
Mike WIll Made It recently sat down with the team at Complex to discuss the making of the track, and explains that the single was originally created for DJ Khaled.
“We were working on this one record that Khaled couldn’t use, and it ended up having Future and Drake on the hook. I ended up giving that same record to Lil Wayne.” Before that, he called upon Drake to lay down part of the hook after Future had put down his part, “I pulled up some beats, and I was like, ‘Drake, I have this beat with Future, I haven’t let you hear this beat before. I feel like this is the one ya’ll need to do together. This is the one, trust me.”
Mike Will continued on, explaining the process behind pairing an artist with the proper beat. “I can’t really explain my ear, but my ear is ill. What you’ve got to understand about production is the voice is an instrument. I only bring certain beats to certain artists. I felt like that would be the one because Future would sound crazy on it and I knew Drake would sound crazy on it.”
