Yo what’s up? This is The-Dream, you know what it is. I’m right here at Genius and I’m about to get into The Cosign and I’m
gonna see if I rock with these new women singers for the next generation. First thing I do when I get a request from Beyoncé or somebody in that
likelihood which is kind of just her in her own world, I just kind of base it on the
message she’s trying to put out into the universe at whatever point of time it is
in her life. It just really depends on the read and the read from me is just
basically where that person is in their life at this point. I think with R&B, the
part that holds it together is human to human contact and relationships, ups and
downs, and the world…what what the world is going through. The times make
R&B what R&B is. There are a lot of great, great girls on the way in you know
that will probably be here for the next 15 years. So yeah I’m pretty excited about
it. Oh, this is dope. Yeah I love the vocals. The vocals remind me of Total. I like the little
kids in there dancing. You got the kids dancing! Yeah the vocal tone that kind of
reminds me of that space where Total was in which is what I loved about them,
is real simple and melodic. It’s just raw talent. It’s pretty dope. Nice clean video. Just out in the park, hanging out. This looks fun. I mean this space is a lot of spaces. It’s India. It’s Lauryn, of course. Definitely that early 2000s vibe. Beautiful. Beautiful. Very confident. She reminds me of the space where trees are. Where it’s just
like they just grow into that space. You can miss like the beauty of it if you’re
not paying any attention. Yeah that’s what that is. Yeah this is one of my favorite records. Love. I need to do like about nine albums with her. Yes! This is more of my life right here,
is this part of growing up. And of course it’s Atlanta. Of course. Got that 5.0
Mustang in there, shawty? Come on man! Nostalgia at its best. It’s not really
like she’s breaking the rules but she’s so hood elegant. She’s her own machine
easily I think she’s so much bigger than this video, that my mind is like imploding. Sounds like the song is hot and
then somebody said “okay let’s shoot something to this song.” But it’s bigger than that. You know the song is the song. It’s really
catchy. But I think she’s like way bigger than what what this video is. I saw that
in the first 20 seconds. It isn’t about improving. I’m quite sure
she loves it and I love it. If you love it I love it. It’s just more so me having
a bigger idea of somebody then than, not themselves, because I’m sure she’s like
“yo give me the world!” it’s just trying to make sure that your
team or who you’re operating with understands you know like your plight
and where you could really go. It sounds really good. There’s that breakbeat again. Got that SWV vibe going on. I feel like doing the wop and shit. I feel like doing my Puffy shit! Oh! Oh! Take that! I’m anxious to see where she goes from is from this space. What happens
with us writers is we have a lot of different lanes we can choose to go down,
and it’s whether we can compartmentalize them to stay in a certain place to
deliver you that thing that you need and fix in that space. Or
we go all the way over and we lose you know the thing we started out with. So hopefully she has another breakbeat coming after this one. I already like this. Look at that. Coming in slow on the palm trees right there. Damnnn B! She’s like downplaying her vocals like to the point where I’m mad. Like, sometimes it’s great to play in these melodies, these melodic spaces, but then
is there’s a time and place where you separate from you know from your
counterparts, if you can. If you have and possess the talent. Yeah I would have loved to
hear that B section and hook kind of go up and give me a lift and like let me
hear the next tone up. Versus it just staying like in that monotone stagnant
place so I could tell her tell ends of her vocals that she knows exactly how to
control it. I can’t place her tone towards anybody I definitely can tell
that she can probably sing her ass off. To be honest out of the
six, She probably has that bigger place you know to go to outside of just
R&B where it just becomes a phenomenon in a different spectrum. So today I’m here at The Cosign and I’m gonna cosign Summer Walker. Represent ATL,
Georgia. What grabbed my attention about Summer Walker, I guess more so, is the automatic future nostalgia of who she is. It’s almost like you could put
her five years out already and come back to this moment and you can see it you
know happening. She seems the most confident and comfortable in that space
and so that’s my cosign. I think they have bright futures if they want them
to be bright. I just need them all to push the envelope and I think we’re just
waiting on that next best thing.
HOST: DaBaby’s rise to stardom has been
a sight to marvel. From earning a No. 1 album on the Billboard
200 Chart, to his Grammy nominations, to being crowned the hottest rapper in the game from
hip-hop legends like Puffy, it’s hard to discredit his work ethic. DABABY: It ain’t happen fast. I’ve seen people pop fast, while I’ve
been working and disappear before I even kicked down the door. I been working, we ain’t come up no easy
way, we aint get on with no cheat codes. HOST: DaBaby credits his success to his quality
video production, saying quote: And other artists like A$AP Rocky have taken
notice. ROCKY: I love DaBaby’s videos…All of em. I like “VIBEZ,” obviously “Baby on Baby,”
you know his best one is “Bop.” JAMES RICO: The concept for Bop, I knew that
we needed to make some kind of feeling of being in a community, or you wanted to feel
like you were a part of the song. HOST: That’s James Rico, director and founder
of Reel Goats, the production team behind a number of DaBaby’s videos. He sat down with Genius to talk about his
team’s creative process, working with DaBaby and how “BOP ON BROADWAY,” was inspired
by a few unlikely movies. RICO: For some reason I thought of Austin
Powers, and it was more about the fact that people wanted to be around him in the intros
of those videos. When I see that people traveling want to be
around him, that’s what I wanted people to do with BOP. Then I remembered Rocky, and when all the
kids were running behind Rocky in the street. Both of those, just those two alone, started
getting me thinking, ‘Okay, it needs to be choreography.’ At rehearsals when I first saw the choreography,
I was filming it on a phone. It was only supposed to be a piece of the
video, the choreography. As I was filming it on the iPhone, I’m gelling
with the dancers, I’m like, ‘Dude, this is amazing.’ HOST: But according to Rico, an Oscar award
winning film really brought it all together. RICO: When I saw ‘La La Land,’ and that
intro years ago, I started wondering could there be a rap version of that. ‘That’s why we call it hip hop musical,’
because it was something I’d never seen an artist do something like that. HOST: Rico is the front man of his video production
crew, the Reel Goats. RICO: Right now there’s four Reel Goats, Spicy,
Gemini and Shaq, All of them are people that I’ve grew up and around. And that’s why I say directed by Reel Goats
because it’s, although I am directing, I’m taking a lot of thoughts in and trying to
process them. I ask their opinions because I trust them. HOST: Most Reel Goats videos have a couple
things in common – humor and spotlighting DaBaby’s larger than life persona, which allows
the rapper to play a variety of characters. RICO: I want to know what he wants to do because
it’s his vision in terms of where he goes as an artist. The best example is “Walker Texas Ranger.” He had wanted to just do the Walker Texas
Ranger theme. I figured out, you know, what does Chuck Norris
do? He survives everything right? PURP: You broke my nose
CHUCK: I’ll fix it RICO: Like he’s just a badass. We just start collaborating and coming up
with ideas. We start on a whiteboard, ‘this is funny,
this is funny, this is funny.’ And it goes from there. What better way to do bad ass shit than to
watch twerking videos while you drive off a cliff. And survive that cliff and then run into a
bunch of hillbillies and then fight them off and survive and walk away. HOST: DaBaby and Rico go back to when the
rapper went by Baby Jesus in the video for his 2016 cut, “Light Show,” off of “God’s
Work.” The pair started their working relationship
by being in the right place at the right time. RICO: Me and DaBaby met at SXSW
in 2015. A guy
was yelling, ‘Hey, come check out this show that’s coming up. Deniro Farrar’s going to play there, XXL nominee.’ I ended up seeing him and he brought out Baby
Jesus aka DaBaby DaBaby DaBaby DaBaby. After the show Deniro ran off. I go up to Baby Jesus and I say, ‘Hey yo,
are you Deniro’s manager?’ I was like, “I want to give him my card. He was like, ‘Oh, no, I’m an artist too.’ And I was like, ‘Well, here’s my card.’ And he gave me his CD. Then as I drove home, I listened to both Deniro
and his songs and then like instantly tried to hit him up. HOST: He and DaBaby have built a special bond
of trust by simply believing in one another. DABABY: Having someone to believe in what
you got going on, that’s willing to drop everything, and sacrifice the way you sacrifice for yourself,
that’s willing to do that with you, and y’all got common goals that’s priceless. HOST: And trusting each other allows them
to play to one of their greatest strengths, improv. RICO: We always come in with a general idea
of what we want to do and he at times will just trust me so much if he doesn’t see it. Sometimes DaBaby comes up with some lines
and these videos on these skits that are just so ridiculous that it’s hard to write for
that. Man, who the fuck is this fat ass punk? Fatass punk? Nigga, meet me tomorrow at 12 o’clock at the Louis store, bitch ass nigga you ain’t like that anyway. It’s up there! Some of the best moments that I’ve seen
him come up with in terms of improv and acting just naturally is from “Pony.” RICO: I had wanted to break that scene up
in Pony and do a couple of cuts, and get some inserts. But when I turned that camera around, the
shot you see was like maybe take three or four. So as I come around, you see him slip in the
video and he catches himself and I hear it and I’m like, don’t fall, don’t fall. But he slips in, catches himself and dunks
it! We decided not to shoot any more of those
scenes for that just because it’s like, you’re not going to see any greater moment of natural
acting than that. HOST: And the Reel Goats work doesn’t stop
with the “Bop” rapper. They’re heavily involved in his Billion
Dollar Baby Ent, producing videos for fellow artists Stunna 4 Vegas and Rich Dunk as well
as providing visuals for other artists like Chance The Rapper’s “Hot Shower,” and
Rico Nasty’s cut “Hard.” Needless to say, Rico and his crew enjoyed
a lot of success over the past year. HOST: So what’s your favorite DaBaby video? Tell us in the comments. I’m Hillary with Genius News, bringing you
the meaning and the knowledge behind the music.

too. It was amazing. -Thank you.
Oh, man. It looks like it got
to your head already. It did. It did. You’re walking differently. It’s a lot. It’s a lot. That’s probably because
I gained weight. But other than that,
it’s been good. I mean, can you believe
you– did you think you had a chance of winning? You know what? I didn’t. And you know, even
when I went into it, you know, we were
picking the costumes. All the costumes were available,
but I picked the silliest looking one. Because I thought I was going
to be gone on the first episode, because I have a
real distinct voice. So I felt like if I’m
going to embarrass myself, I might as well just take
it to the highest level. Well, first of all, you
don’t have a distinct voice. Because number one, we are
used to doing the auto tune. I don’t think anybody’s
ever heard you sing. You have an amazing voice. Thank you. I appreciate that. No one’s heard
that voice before. It’s weird. Like, if I go to a restaurant,
which is, you know, me and my wife, we’re chilling. And there’s always
somebody– when we’re having a conversation, if
they’re sitting behind my wife and with their back
to me, they always go, is that T-Pain back there? Just from hearing my voice. So you know, my
speaking voice is– I don’t know. People tell me it’s weird. I don’t hear it. No. Well, they disguised
your speaking voice. And it wasn’t distinctive,
obviously, because none of them guessed you at all. Yeah, that was weird. That was weird. I think that’s the
first time I’ve gone through that in my life. Yeah. And it was it uncomfortable? Because you lasted
a long time, and you had to wear that costume. You know what? I didn’t think it through. It was hot. It was hot, Ellen. It was hot. It was not a cool situation. They were like, no, there’s
going to be a fan in there. You’ll have all
this stuff going on. You’ll be good. We got misters on site. And then everything changed. And they was like, OK,
we can hear the fan, so we got to take it. And it was just a lot. I didn’t think it
through at all. But I mean, all in all, I
did pick the– you know, I think I picked the worst
costume to be in for that long. Yeah. Because everybody else’s
was a mask and just clothes. Right. I picked a cylinder
for some reason. Right, right. And just a giant head. But I think that came
from me wanting to get in one of those costumes. You know, always
going to theme parks and always wondering what
it’s like in those costumes. It’s terrible. Don’t do it. I’ve never wondered what
it’s like in a costume. There’s a couple
things– you wonder what it’s like to get
in one of them costumes and what all is in
a clown suitcase. Those are the two
things you wonder? Those two things, you really
don’t have too many chances to find out. Right. I’ll let you know what’s
in a clown suitcase. We’re going to find
a clown for you. We’re going to introduce
you, and you’re going to hang out with
a clown for the day. I’ll do that for you. It sounds creepy now. Yeah. That’s what I’m
trying to tell you. OK, yeah. So did anyone, like,
any of your peers reach out and know
that it was you? Everybody. Everybody. Like who? Who reached out? Lil Wayne reached out to me. He reached out first,
and he was like, how did they not know that’s
you in that mask, bro? And I was like, I
don’t know, man. That’s just how it works. But you know, like,
your NDA is in the mail. But still, everybody
else, like my mom– obviously, she knew. I couldn’t lie to her for
the first three weeks. And then it just turned
into this whole thing where all I was getting
was text messages like, how did they not
know that’s you? I know that’s you. That has to be you. And why didn’t you tell me
you were doing the show? And how much money are
you making from this? Can I get a car? It was just a lot. It was so much. Yeah. And you had to sign a NDA. So you couldn’t– Absolutely. Yeah, you couldn’t
disclose anything. All right, you’re wearing a
very subtle chain on today. I mean, compared
to what you like. So I got you– I know you won a trophy. But I wanted to get you
something that you would enjoy. What? Oh, boy. Oh, what in– OK. That’s your chain. All right, what– Uh-huh. Subtle chain. Subtle chain. T-Pain’s album 1UP is available
on all streaming platforms. We’ll be right back. T-Pain, everybody.
TIA: Future and Drake reunite once again on
their newest cut, “Life Is Good,” with a few bars about old feuds. TIA: Production credits on the track include
D. Hill and Oz, and is the pair’s first official collaboration since “Blue Tint”
on ‘Scorpion’ back in 2018. TIA: Both rappers have been teasing the song over the course of the past month, dropping
snippets on Instagram and in the club. But Future confirmed the song’s premiere
the night before its release in a radio spot on Real 106.1. TIA: Drake starts off, bragging about a custom
Patek Phillippe watch designed by Off-White founder Virgil Abloh that he shared on Instagram
shortly after the song’s release. TIA: He also appears to make a reference to his infamous beef with Pusha T back in 2018,
which he discussed in a recent interview — and said he was over it. DRAKE: From a very early point I’ve never shied away from defending myself. And I’m also sometimes eager to engage if
I feel that you wanna be slick or be offensive behind the scenes, I might choose to address in music. I just realized that nobody cares about
this guy so there’s not really much I can say better than Drake has a baby, he won. TIA: Drake also appears to address his conflict
with Kanye West, who he previously revealed had tried to play a heavy role in the release
of ‘Scorpion.’ DRAKE: You gotta be transparent with me and
you gotta play me your music and tell me when you’re dropping and I know you don’t like
to do things like that. TIA: Later on in his verse, Drake shouts out
Future’s crew, Free Bandz Gang, while again flexing his new jewelry. TIA: Drake and Future have collaborated many,
many times before, beginning all the way back in 2011 on Future’s “Tony Montana,”
with a host of other collabs and features, like the mixtape, ‘What
A Time To Be Alive’ in 2015. Drake was also the only feature on Future’s
album ‘Dirty Sprite 2’ earlier that year. TIA: Back on “Life Is Good,” we hear the
beat switch up halfway through the track as Future takes center stage. TIA: As usual, Future serves up some verses
about living a lavish life full of women and drugs, and at one point he specifically shouts
out professional tennis champion Serena Williams. TIA: And in anticipation of the song’s release,
Future posted a video of himself and Drake sporting matching chains with the caption
“Life Is Good.” TIA: The music video was helmed by Director X, who was also responsible for Drake’s
viral video for “Hotline Bling.” TIA: The “Life Is Good” visual shows Future
and Drake trying out a number of different jobs, ranging from trash collectors, to Apple
store employees, to fast food workers as well as crew members on the set of a fake music
video. DRAKE: What do you wanna do? Go again? You’re the boss. TIA: The video also boasts a host of celebrity
cameos. With fellow rappers Lil Yachty and 21 Savage
both working alongside them, as well as rapper slash actor Big Bank Black and producer
Mike Will Made It. TIA: Within hours of its release, the video
has racked up millions of views, and it’s already shot to the top of the Genius song
chart, with many fans hype to see their favorite duo back together again. TIA: If you wanna learn more about “Life
Is Good,” check out the song page on Genius.com. TIA: I’m Tia with Genius News bringing you
the meaning and the knowledge behind the music.
