“He did it for free,” Staples said during a talk with Big Boy in May. “And I don’t believe in asking nobody to do nothing for free. I believe in whatever you charge – you gotta feed your family, and he did it for free. And you already know, he can charge whatever he wants.”

He added: “It’s funny because I met him at a Motown thing. We was cool and we ain’t really talk like that. And I was like, ‘Lil Baby would sound good on this.’ And I was tryna get it so where we could talk about it. He said: ‘We don’t even have to talk, I’m a do it.’ He just went and did it … he looked out.”
