In a recent interview with Complex, DJ Drama discussed the creation of Call me if you get lost. “As you can see from Tyler’s tweet, he said 10 or 11 years ago that he wanted a fucking Gangsta Grillz. So we’ve worked together in the past and have been cool and cordial over the years. Last summer he contacted me. He was like, ‘Yo, I got something. I had this idea, âexplained Drama. âAnd we discussed it. Initially he was going to send me the music, but we all decided it would be best if I come to LA and work directly on it. So I went out last year. We just started the process of working on it and reviewing it and so forth. It was a great experience working with Tyler, just really delving into his world and his brain on how he cut music is super dope.
