“We’re both solid as they come. We’re genuine dudes from the streets so we relate in so many ways, we’re just from different area codes and parts of the globe,” Trae told The FADER of initially meeting Mozzy. “We made the album in L.A. and did most of the songs at [producer of “Ground Rules”] June Onna Beat’s house. We got in his studio for a couple of days and were knocking out tracks back-to-back.”
He then told the site of how he linked with Snoop Dogg for “Ground Rules”: “Me and Snoop always had a close relationship, that’s family. With me and Mozzy making an album together, we’re connecting the South and West Coast real heavy so it was only right to get the father of West Coast gangsta music, Snoop Dogg, on a song.”
The song details how the three had to breakground rules of hustling in the streets and in music to make it to where they are now.
