Producer G Koop helped make the sample pack Metro Boomin used to create "Bad and Boujee."
Ten years into the game, Berklee College of Music graduate G Koop has worked with the best producers to create well-known hits. G Koop said he has a large network of heavyweight producers to whom he sends sample packs to produce beats. He saves money for record labels by creating interpolations that seem identical the original song. Metro Boomin borrowed his sample pack to create two different tracks.
"The sample pack for 'Bad and Boujee' was one that I did in January of this past year. I sent it to Metro Boomin and from that sample pack we did 'Bad & Boujee,' and also 21 Savage’s 'Ocean Drive' from the Savage Mode album. My elements to those songs were made in the same week," he told DJBooth.net.
Avoiding the "Blurred Lines" legal nightmare, labels and producers no longer worry about sample clearance since G Koop creates original compositions in the studio. He frequently partners with Jake One, with whom he worked on Drake's Nothing Was The Same. The Oakland native's credits also appears on Future and Jay Z's “I Got The Keys” with Southside of 808 Mafia.
"I’m like the Wolf from Pulp Fiction. I help situations move along in the way that they should," he said.
