Meek Mill Was Supposed To Get Bobby Shmurda's 'Hot Nigga' Beat

It's been over three years since Bobby Shmurda exploded on the scene with 'Hot Nigga.'

The track's beat first belonged to Lloyd Banks, but the G-Unit spitter didn't do much with it.

Then Bobby got hold of it and, well, shmurdered it.

The beat came from Jahlil Beats and in an interview with DJBooth.net he explained it was originally for meant for Meek Mill.

"That beat was actually for Meek Mill as well," Jahlil said. "At the time, he had so much of that type of music, so I sent it to Lloyd Banks. He put the record out and never really did nothing with it. Nowadays, it's like rappers put your record out and if it pops off, then they do the business side. So he put it out and I was like, 'Aight, cool.' I really fucked with the record." Banks' version never really took off, but Shmurda got his hands on the instrumental (featured on one of Jahlil's Crack Music tapes) and quickly made history."
Jahlil had no idea who Shmurda was when he first heard 'Hot Nigga.' But he was able to track down the Brooklyn upstart and work out a financial arrangement, which led to a more formal collaboration.
"We got about five records that we had worked on before [Shmurda] got locked up," he said. "His success was very short. He got locked up like a month after that record really blew up."
If Meek had kept the beat, he could have used it on his 2015 Dreams Worth More Than Money album. Do you think he could have done as much with it as Bobby was able to?
