Rising production duo Brasstracks recently sat down with Genius to discuss how they produced Chance the Rapper’s “No Problem.” The song, which features Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz, won a Grammy this year for Best Rap Performance and peaked at No. 43 on Billboard’s Hot 100.
In a six-minute video, Brasstracks break down the story behind the song and how they used stock sounds in Ableton Live to create it. The duo insists they didn’t use samples in the track, though it was inspired by Kanye West’s old style of sampling.
Brasstracks also explain how they connected with Chance. “Everything we’ve ever put out, we get so many people saying that Chance the Rapper should get on it, and one day we tweeted that exact thing,” they say. “He retweeted it, and then he followed us. So we DM’ed him.”
