Breaking down the beat in Chris Brown and Young Thug’s “Go Crazy”

“I heard it about a week before it came out, and l remember just listening to it and being like ‘damn,'” KanielTheOne tells us.

“We were both really just looking for a song that was going to change the game, and this song changed both of our situations,” Murphy Kid responds. The two producers are of course talking about none other than “Go Crazy,” the chart-topping single from Chris Brown and Young Thug that they collaborated on. Since its release, the infectious song has broke numerous records, garnered hundreds of millions of streams across platforms, and sparked the viral “Go Crazy challenge” on TikTok.

In the video above, KanielTheOne and Murphy Kid sat down with us to discuss how the track came together. From there, they went into the DAW to give the producer community an inside look into how the song’s beat was crafted.
