Atlanta producer Wheezy has explained how he made Lil Baby and Drake‘s “Yes Indeed” on a new episode of Genius’ Deconstructed. The track, which was DJcity’s No. 21 most-downloaded song of May, peaked at No. 6 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and has been certified platinum.
Speaking with Genius, Wheezy recalls how the collaboration happened after meeting Drake while working with Kanye West in Wyoming. He then breaks down each layer of “Yes Indeed” in FL Studio.
Wheezy gained notoriety in 2015 for producing most of Young Thug‘s Barter 6 mixtape. His production credits also include Young Thug’s “Guwop” featuring Offset, Quavo, and Young Scooter, and Migos‘ “White Sand” featuring Travis Scott, Ty Dolla $ign, and Big Sean.
“Yes Indeed” appears on Lil Baby’s debut album, Harder Than Ever. The project peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 in late May.
