“[DJ] Dahi and I, when we were working on DAMN., the first day I came to work on this record, we just made beats,” Lacy said. He is so organized. “He has all these different drum loops. He had this loop, and I did this groove, but Dot didn’t use it. Dahi just collects stuff. I guess Malcolm was working on his record and he liked the beat that became “Jet Fuel”.
