In an interview with Complex, AXL Beats discusses his come up, becoming the go-to producer for Brooklyn rappers for beats and how Drake’s “War” single came about.
When did you make the “War” beat and how did it get in the hands of Drake?
I started working on it a couple months back. I didn’t actually finish the beat at first. I just started working on it. I wasn’t really popping. Then Drake’s manager hit me up, so I finished the beat off and sent it to him. He liked it, and he said Drake fucked with it. So Drake hopped on it, and he put that shit out like a month later.
