"Yo," Drake said to Boi-1da, after hearing an early version of "Mob Ties" for the first time. "Make sure you put this one on lock for me." Working late within the Scorpion sessions, Boi-1da crafted "Mob Ties" with collaborators Allen Ritter and Ashley Turner. What began as a half-time slow burn of an R&B track eventually transformed into the trap anthem we know today, with a little help from Omnisphere and Splice Sounds. "Mob Ties" is one of many of Drake and Boi-1da's collaborations, with a partnership spanning as far back as 2009's "Best I Ever Had" all the way to 2018's "God's Plan."
Watch Boi-1da tell us about meeting a young Aubrey Graham aka Drake (still riding a wheelchair down Degrassi High), how their collaborations come to life, and being nominated for six Grammy awards this year, including his win for "God's Plan."
