You gotta love this “Deconstructed” series Genius has displayed for producer heads. Genius links up with super producer Boi-1da for the creation of “Diplomatic Immunity” off Drake’s Scary Hours EP. Boi-1da breaks down the creation of the beat, the sample used, and the back story of how it got into Drake’s hands.
Drake has developed a reputation for dropping music without warning, starting with his 2015 mixtape ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late,’ and he’s continued to use the tactic in 2018. Back in January, the rapper shared his unexpected two-track EP ‘Scary Hours.’ While “God’s Plan” received a boost for its viral charitable video, “Diplomatic Immunity” also stands its own ground with a rap style that’s reminiscent of Drake’s early material.
Check out the beat breakdown after the break.
