Boyd: Can you talk to us a bit about ‘On My Sleeve?’
Scribz: That’s my favorite beat that I’ve made. I wanted something that was crazy in terms of production, vocals, etc. I started the song and realized that I wanted a feature. I was listening to a lot of Kaash Paige at the time, and I hit her up. She had already heard the song and loved it. She sent her verse and killed it. I was so happy—there was nobody else I would have wanted on that song. That song is about growing as a person.
Boyd: Being a Grammy Award-winning producer and songwriter, could you talk to us a little more about songwriting? What’s it like to work with Cardi B. and big stars?
Scribz: For me, it was about putting in the hours. I look at production as if you are providing a service. It’s about being able to get in the mind frame of the artists you are working with and being able to deliver on what they need. Sometimes that means being able to think outside of the box for them. I think the reason why my Cardi B song connected was that it was something different for her. We brought something new. When working with artists, I try to bring ‘me’ to the table. I hadn’t met Cardi when we made the song. So it originally wasn’t made with ‘Cardi’ in mind.
