The track is produced by Smoke Ono and Mike Dean, with additional work from Carter Lang and Papi Beatz. Smoko Ono has a history with Vic Mensa, having produced 2014's "Feel That." Mike Dean has had a storied production career, and given that him and Mensa both have a strong connection Kanye West, perhaps "I Been" is a preview of the sort of sounds we'll hear on SWISH. At any rate, knowing Mike Dean's mixing style, the track was engineered so that it would bang when performed live.
Listen to "I Been" and sound off in the comments.
The boy do it for the crib,
Heard that it ain't where you from, it's where you live, fuck that
Ain't where you at, where you been, fuck that,
Anything else but the squad, fuck that
