Vlad Asks Hotboii How Much He Paid for His Lil Baby Verse (Part 3)
Part 4: https://youtu.be/V63CNMO9h4APart 2: https://youtu.be/KJdUAS-CqCIPart 1: https://youtu.be/iqjLiTMctt0--------Hotboii explained the inspiration behind his breakthrough single, "Don't Need Time," which has over 21 million views on YouTube alone. The rapper said the song was inspired by the death of his friend Wolf and was created seven days after he passed. Hotboii said Wolf tried calling him 30 minutes before he was killed. Without mentioning specifics of the incident, he said Wolf was his first close friend to die and made him "get a grip on life."
He talked about not expecting "Don't Need Time" to blow up the way it did as well as getting Lil Baby on the remix. Hotboii called the Lil Baby feature an accomplishment due to the Atlanta rapper being one of his favorites. While the original track was inspired by Wolf's death, Hotboii said the remix was inspired by another friend who was killed by police.
