Welcome to BuzzMusic, BIG VENTI & Rickstarrdidit. We love the playful yet relaxed vibe within your spicy new single, "GROUPIES." When did you start executing ideas and creating this song? What inspired it?
BIG VENTI: First of all, appreciate the love! Rickstarrdidit sent me the beat and his hook for "GROUPIES" through iMessage, and I was like, “this sounds like a movie; we gotta record on this now! Lyrically, I was inspired by my experiences being in the limelight in Hollywood.
Rickstarrdidit: My homie/A&R Artur introduced me to BIG VENTI. Ever since we linked, it's been magic. When I wrote the hook, I was making the beat, and I thought to myself, hmmm, this sounds like a drake track.
Rickstarrdidit, what was it like collaborating with BIG VENTI for "GROUPIES?" What was your favorite part about that experience?
First off, It was an amazing experience meeting BIG VENTI! I was with him every step of the way. Regarding our track “GROUPIES,” I was going through some tracks I had on my computer that were apparently unfinished reference tracks. Soon as I opened up “GROUPIES,” which was intended to be a reference track for Drake, I just knew I had to send it to Venti asap!
BIG VENTI and Rickstarrdidit, what was your goal with "GROUPIES"? How did you want listeners to feel when hearing it for the first time?
BIG VENTI: I had one goal with this- for people to catch a VIBE when they listen. It’s one of those tracks you play first thing in the morning to set the mood for your day. This is some of that real talk, boss energy music.
Rickstarrdidit: My goal for “GROUPIES” was for it to be a club smash! I envisioned myself performing the hook at club LIV. I wanted people to feel like they are the ish when this track comes on while repeating the hook.
BIG VENTI, how do songs like "GROUPIES" represent you and the music you create? Do you usually create such feel-good, party-like tracks?
Feel good, party tracks are my forte. We should all be in this life for a good time. That’s why I named my upcoming debut album “Party Hills.” It drops on August 19….look out for it!
Rickstarrdidit, this release was such a hit. Do you and BIG VENTI plan on doing more collaboration in the future?
I plan to work with BIG VENTI for many years to come. We have a lot more hits coming. This is just the beginning!
