Thump recently spoke with Quebec native, High Klassified on his recent placement on Future’s very R&B influenced project “HNDRXX”. The Fool’s Gold Signee went into detail about the creation of the “Comin’ Out Strong” beat featuring The Weeknd:
I made it (the beat) in November. It’s the last beat I made before I lost my hard drive when it got stolen at one of my shows. I only have the WAV file, not the stems. But the thing is I liked the beat so much at the time, I sent it to my email so I could listen to it later. I was listening to it one day and thought, “I should send it to Abel.” I sent it to him with three parts, but what you hear on the album is only part one with some drum parts they added.
