Inspiration can come from anywhere. For Lil Wayne, the inspiration for his hit single "No Worries" came from a regular old conversation with his videographer DJ Scoob Doo and YMCMB producer Detail.
"We had a weekend that we really wasn't doing anything but in the studio working, and so we just decided to hang out and party the whole weekend, at the studio — not out in clubs," Detail told MTV News back in October while the YMCMB crew was out in Las Vegas shooting videos for both "No Worries" and Birdman's [article id="1698141"]"Shout Out"[/article] single.
After Scoob Doo forgot to bring some unspecified party favors, Detail protested — that is, until Scoob hit him with two simple words. "He was like, 'No worries, man. We good, no worries,' " the hitmaker recalled.
With a catchphrase already in place, Wayne and Detail began working on the track, which served as the first single from Weezy's just-released [article id="1704333"]I Am Not a Human Being II.[/article] The track was released last September as part of Tunechi's Dedication 4 mixtape, and just days later, he performed it at the [article id="1693364"]2012 Video Music Awards[/article]. Eventually, it peaked at #7 on the Billboard Rap Songs chart, but Young Money president Mack Maine knew it would be a hit from the very beginning.
"I actually wasn't in the studio that night. Wayne called me the next morning, he woke me up like, 'We did one,' " Mack told us. "Once he rapped it to me a cappella on the phone, I knew it was a beast. I knew it was gonna be one of those ones."
For Detail, who produced and performs the hook, "No Worries" was just a great example of the creativity that he, Wayne and the rest of YMCMB exhibit on the daily. "Being around 'em more, I realized that there's just so many songs that are just our everyday lifestyles and conversations," he said. "So I think that's what we're tapping into now. We deal with so many interesting things."
