New York sounds like something that I could really listen to. It's like a vibe; it's a hit song. It's a song that you could listen to in five years and still like.
Me and Tory Lanez got good chemistry together. We could make a song so easy, but we always like to figure out what we're really doing. We can make a good song, but it gotta make sense.
Me and Thugger could make nine songs in a day and then choose which songs we like the most and think is gonna do something. With other people, it's like, we pick one song, and we hope it's the one.
The 'Billionaire' song is what my kids tease me with. They sing it to me. It's funny.
There are alway going to be bad things. But you can write it down and make a song out of it.
Writing a song is so personal. You have to have trust in someone you're working with; otherwise, you're not gonna come out with something that's really you.
You can write a song about being in love with someone, but you don't have to be in love with anyone.
I feel like I write so that people can think of it as theirs. If my song is exactly about your life right now, then it is I don't even want to say that it's mine, because it's yours.
What makes a song last is real content from a mind that is thinking a little bit harder about certain things. A lot of artists don't really think that hard.
People have so much going on in their heads. I'm like, If you could write a song, you'd feel so much better!
My brother had written 'Ocean Eyes,' and we recorded it, basing all of the production around contemporary and lyrical dance. I think of most songs that way if you can't dance to a song, it's not a song.
I used to write random little stupid things when I was five, but then the first song I really wrote was one called 'Fingers Crossed,' which is on SoundCloud.
Being an artist doesn't just mean you have a song. That doesn't make you an artist. The word 'artist' means so many different things, and I feel like to be a real one, you really have to do it all. The people that I think of as artists Tyler the Creator, Childish Gambino, Kanye West are doing the most.
