216thetakeover.com: You, and Dez are behind Chip, and Kid Cudi's "Ask About Me", how did that song come together?
Rami Beatz: Dez came over one day, and I had this new keyboard at the time called the Korg M3 it was a pretty sweet keyboard. He got on the keyboard, and played the chords of the song and added this crazy ass woodpecker sounding sound, at first I didn't know what he was doing but, then it made sense at the end. Dez always got some crazy ideas... I added my part to the track, and I just let it sit in the keyboard for a couple days, then finally saved it. We made the beat in like 15 minutes, I was actually not even going to save it originally. Thank God I did though!
