HARD Events founder Destructo has released a video for his new g-house track “4 Real” featuring Ty Dolla $ign and ILoveMakonnen. The song was produced by “Captain D” himself, along with Australians Wax Motif and Styalz Fuego.
Destructo explained how the track came about in the video description:
“The second night of HARD Summer, Ty told me he wanted to go back in the studio. He could only do it the next day, So, I went down to his house with Waxy and he just started singing, ‘I’m for real’ ‘I’m for real’ over this beat we had written. I had already spoken to Makonnen about the track, so Ty shouted him out. Makonnen then returned the favor. After we got all the vocals back we were like dam we need to make this track the best it can be. We went back in and re-worked the entire thing. Wax brought in his homie Stylaz Fuego to make it even tighter and 6 months later bang here we go. G-House 2.0. Hope it was worth the wait if you dig it play it up in the club.”
