Influential hip-hop label Quality Control Music has dropped “Too Hotty,” a 65 BPM heater featuring Quavo, Takeoff, and Offset. It is the lead track off the label’s upcoming compilation album, Quality Control Presents: Control the Streets Vol. 1.
While fans often get to see A-Trak perform DJ sets, they rarely get to see his creative process as a producer.
However, the former Grammy nominee has showed Genius how he produced his latest single “Believe” on a new episode of Deconstructed. The track, which features Lil Yachty and Quavo, currently sits at No. 7 on DJcity’s Hot Box chart.
In the video, A-Trak says he recorded the song a year ago but stored it away for a few months. He breaks down the changes he made to it over time, including adding a playful sound inspired by the Rugrats theme song. A-Trak also recalls getting advice from his brother Dave 1 from Chromeo and Fool’s Good artist Promnite.
Directed by Philip Andelman and hosted by Eko, the clip enables viewers to toggle between a young boy’s real life and dream world. As Billboard puts it, “This is the kind of the music video you can get lost in.”
The grainy VHS-quality visual shows the rappers showing off clothing from designer brand Raf Simons, which the song references. The original song features verses from Lil Uzi Vert and Frank Ocean, though both have been left out in the video.
“RAF” was DJcity’s 18th most downloaded track of June.

The visual goes back and forth between a boy’s mundane life and his fantasy of being Major Lazer’s backup dancer. Quavo doesn’t make an appearance, but the other featured artists along with Diplo and Walshy Fire do.
The single, which appears on Major Lazer’s Know No Better EP, was DJcity’s most downloaded track of June.
