The track finds Mike Will crafting a hard-hitting rhythm section on top of which sits a bunch of squirming synths that lend the beat a hypnotic quality. Both Youngboy Never Broke Again and Minaj are in fine form, peeling off plenty of delightfully outrageous bars, with Youngboy even pulling off a clever rhyme of “Forgiato shoes” and “Blues Clues.”
“What That Speed Bout?!” arrives with a music video directed by Edgar Esteves and Austin McCraken in which Mike Will plays a mad scientist who comes up with a way to clone both himself and make a few extra versions of Youngboy Never Broke Again.
