The Making Of Sheck Wes' "Mo Bamba" With Take A Daytrip & 16yrold | Deconstructed

  • Am Vor 3 years

    GeniusGenius

    Sheck Wes’ breakthrough hit “Mo Bamba” led to a joint deal between G.O.O.D. Music and Cactus Jack in early 2018, but the party-starting track has continued to surge in popularity. On September 8, the single debuted at No. 82 on the Billboard Hot 100 and has since climbed to its current peak of No. 42. While Sheck’s booming vocals are an important part of the song, producers 16yrold and Take A Daytrip set a tone with their ominous beat.

that part where it stops and sheck says "Oh fuck shit!!" is the best part of the song and its crazy to realize that it wasn't even premeditated, it just came out organically by mistake, and what the producers thought what was going to ruin there opporutinity and make em go "back home" actually was the most important part.

As a producer and purists, glad you got actual producers on here. After the decline of hip hop, I stopped writing, stopped producing and more. I was annoyed with people using FL and clicking a button on two calling themselves producers. I had boards, Triton, mophatts, mpcs, notations, asr10s, fantoms, etc I had to all of what they in pro tools and such. So, was annoyed after I saw this new stuff Then it became hard to shop beats since I wasn't into a lot of the mumble rap. So glad to see people getting back at it. I will get back into it and shop to some majors
