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 "Shout Out" 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 I Am Not a Human Being II. The track was released last September as part of Tunechi's Dedication 4 mixtape, and just days later, he performed it at the 2012 Video Music Awards. 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."
