“White tee flexin” is a feel-good track that has elements of hip-hop, R&B and pop blended together seamlessly. Its catchy hook will be stuck in your head all day, and make you want to flex in your white tee as well. This is a great song to add in any chill playlist to keep you motivated and bopping your head all day long.
Bill Grippin explains the meaning and story behind the song for this article.: “We wanted to make a summer jam that would sound good on the radio. Something to get the people feeling themselves, you know. Something that even your mom would like. I recorded the song at 4am in my home studio. I had just arrived back from working a double shift at my security guard job, and I thought to myself ‘I want to make a song so good that if I got the right attention, then I wouldn’t have to be working a double shift at a lumber yard anymore, you know.’ Working with K-Blu was crazy because we actually came up with the chorus over the phone. Blu and I came up with magic and that isn’t anything new from the two of us. We get stuff done plain and simple. Working off each other’s energy, we both had the same idea at the end of the day: “Let’s make a radio hit without sacrificing lyricism” Done, done and done.”
