Watch London On Da Track Explain How He Produced ‘No Flag’ Feat. Nicki Minaj, 21 Savage, and Offset

Rising hip-hop producer, London On Da Track, has broken down his debut solo single “No Flag” on Genius’ Deconstructed series. The song features Nicki Minaj, 21 Savage, and Offset.

London begins by discussing why he chose to work with Nicki, 21, and Offset, and explains what inspired the track’s dark undertones. He then breaks down the song in Ableton, including a bass layer that he says sounds “like somebody hunting you down with a knife.”

An Atlanta native, London has risen to prominence in recent years by producing anthems like Tyga‘s “Hookah,” T.I.‘s “About the Money,” and Rich Gang‘s “Lifestyle,” and most recently Drake‘s “Sneakin’.” In August, the 26-year-old signed with RCA Records as part of his transition from producer to artist.
