Dallas producer LilJuMadeDaBeat recently sat down with Genius to break down how he created the beat for Megan Thee Stallion’s Fever standout, “Cash Sh#t.”

The track, which features North Carolina rapper DaBaby, peaked at No. 34 on the Billboard Hot 100 and recently reached platinum status. The song also inspired Meg’s 2019 summer anthem “Hot Girl Summer,” where the Houston rapper first coined the term “hot girl.”

“So, her being from Texas and me being from the state of Texas it’s just a gumbo pot of just mixtures, like it’s working so perfectly.” said Lil Ju.
