Murda Beatz Reveals Drake Nice For What Single Came About From Playing NBA 2K

Murda Beatz was a guest on episode 33 of Elliott Wilson and Brian “B.Dot” Miller’s Rap Radar Podcast.

During their conversation, the producer revealed how Drake‘s “Nice For What” single that samples Lauryn Hill came about:

“I feel like music needed a record like [“Nice For What”]. We were chilling at Drake’s house playing [NBA 2K] and we came up with the idea to sample a female artist. So I asked my manager: ‘Yo, what do you think?’ He’s like: ‘Ex-Factor.’ And Drake’s like: ‘Oh, what part?’ And we picked the part, chopped it up, I made the beat while he was playing 2K. [Drake’s] like: ‘This shit fire.’ He sat there, wrote the shit in front of me, cut the shit in front of me. We got the shit done — beat and song, probably in like an hour and a half.”
