Cardo Got Wings Talks Kendrick Lamar, Drake And Producing Career

Some of you might be familiar with the producer tag “Cardo got wings“. It’s likely that you’ve heard it even if you didn’t know what you were hearing.

The Denver, Colorado-born producer, Cardo, has engineered some of the biggest hip-hop bangers over the past several years and more recently, Drake’s new number 1 record “God’s Plan”. The musician is also responsible for the new Kendrick Lamar and Travis Scott song on Black Panther: The Album.

Cardo recently spoke to Digital Trends about his career, influences and more.

On Drake’s “God’s Plan”:

This year you went from bubbling under the surface to co-producing Drake’s #1 record, God’s Plan. How did you make that beat? What is your reaction to the response.

It was really my cousin’s idea, Young Exclusive. He brought it to the table, sent it to me, I did what I had to do, then sent it to Drake around September 2017. The name of the beat originally was called Grace of God, which was really weird. He called the song God’s Plan … My cousin was like, “Yo, this is destined for us.”

On Kendrick Lamar:

My relationship with [Kendrick] is that’s my bro, bro. We have a cool, solid relationship. We exchange ideas and he’ll tell me what he got in mind. I’ll be like, “Alright, cool.” I’ll send it back to him and he goes, “This is it. This is ear candy.”
