On signing to Epic Records and Future’s Freebandz label:
We signed the deal in October of 2012, but really we always knew each other. We’ve been doing songs together since 2010, 2011. I actually got an old song on my YouTube with Future called “Girlfriend.” But what made it official was this song “Another One” I had with Future and Levi Leer produced by Mike Will Made It. It had been picking up on the charts real heavy before I got signed. It started in the strip clubs in Atlanta. I couldn’t even really get into the strip clubs in Atlanta at the time. I had to sneak into a few clubs to perform the song. So once it started to expand outside of the strip club, it forced the hand to make it to the radio. And once that happened, people started seeing it, and the labels started calling and the situation just became good.
