LISTENtoSIN released his single “Dynasty” after teasing it Twitter. The Mikeiilo produced song is probably one of the most potent verses from SIN to date. In this Q&A, we talk to the two creators about the making of the song, and more.
Valholla: Explain the process of recording Dynasty
SIN: At first “Dynasty” was nothing more than just a freestyle joint I laced. We would always randomly play in front of people prior to release & the feedback was always real. Might even be the first real song MikeiiLo & I recorded together, out of the many.
VH: How did you build the production that ended up becoming Dynasty?
Mikeiilo: I don’t really remember. This beat is almost 5 years old. I was never planning on releasing it. I’m not really a fan of the beat but everyone else is lol. I do remember the sample coming from the man 40a. If you know, you know.
VH: There’s a “Jay Z Dynasty” reference on this song. What’s your favorite album from him and why?
SIN: My favorite Jay Z album would either be “Reasonable Doubt” or “The Blueprint.” They change almost daily. Depends on how much the sun is shining that day haha.
VH: This question is a little left-field but if someone were playing Dynasty during a DJ mix at a party, what song should she, or he play before it?
Mikeiilo: Definitely “Get it Started” by SIN, Rob Markman, Fatboy Shaw, and Track Burnaz – (Vince & The Valholla Empire).
VH: Favorite line from the song?
SIN: “& you already know… Ya’ man is a lame & ya’ girl is a hoe. I swear I had a story ‘bout a story I promised I wouldn’t tell.” It always just makes me laugh when I hear it because it’s so witty & cryptic at the same time haha
VH: You recently tweeted that Dynasty won’t appear on your upcoming project. How did you make that decision given how crazy the song is?
SIN: Honestly, it was a tough decision but “Dynasty” was recorded some time ago even though it was presented to y’all fairly recent… Which is dope! But, so much has changed & progressed from then & now with both of our sounds. It only felt right to move with the current momentum that we’re on. Everything has to sound cohesively pleasing.
VH: Who do you both see on the remix???
SIN: Since the release, my man Rob Markman has not been shy about his admiration for the track. I could definitely hear him putting a body bag on this beat! Waddup Rob! Also, I can hear my man Hi-Rez doing a lot of damage to the remix as well. He has sick ability to play with his speeds while he raps & I feel like it’ll be a dope mesh.
