in an exclusive interview with Jay-Wise, we asked a few questions to give us a better insight into what goes on behind the scenes to make Latin rappers come together on this level and make music we can enjoy.
TD: Who was it that had the idea to start the track?
JW: My idea it was supposed to be just me then i let my dude Cakes hear it from my block he did two verses on it, then Tana Heard it wanted a verse and then we asked Reynos to get on it and he was down
TD: where did the concept come from?
JW: Just wanted to do a song for Washington Heights let the world see what we see uptown
TD: I know you’ve known Tana for a long time, and you guys are part of the group Corp Cartel, but how did you, reynos and Cakes hookup?
JW: Cakes is a young up and coming rapper from my block 181 we worked on another song and the hood was feeling it so he jumped on this real quick to make another hood classic , Reynos and I been having a relationship for a couple of years he’s also featured on my Album / Mixtape The Wake Up Call . He’s a very cool very humble person and we vibe well together so he also jumped on it right away
TD: How was it working with Reynos and cake?
JW: Cakes wasn’t in the studio with us but we recorded it in the same studio but he’s a cool dude hungry and true to the street so when he had the verse done in like a day in fact like i said he 1st did 2 verses (laughs). Whenever We’re in the studio with Reynos it’s a good time funny dude it’s like family he wrote his verse there in the studio and knocked it out right away
