Drumma Boy links up with Audiomack to tell us the story behind the making of “No Hands.”

Memphis’ Drumma Boy is responsible for some of the greatest hits in hip-hop. The rapper-producer has logged legendary collaborations with OutKast, Bun B, Jeezy, Waka Flocka Flame, and more. Taking a look back at his highest grossing song, Drumma Boy links up with Audiomack to tell us the story behind “No Hands.”

“We gotta get a big Top 10 record,” Drumma recalls thinking during the session. “I just got on the beat machine, starting making beats, everybody talkin’ and it’s crazy. I like making beats around noise.” While everybody around Drumma is celebrating and drinking, he’s feeding off the energy in the room and notices Roscoe Dash and Wale writing.

“I see Roscoe Dash writing a hook, and I already know, Roscoe the hook killer,” Drumma says. “I dumped a beat in like five, ten minutes. Roscoe went in the booth and I swear to God, the first words… The whole room just turnt.”

The rest, as they say, is hip-hop hitmaking history.
