David DA Doman Speaks On Producing Young Money Senile Single

If you didn’t already know, Young Money will soon be dropping a new single from their Young Money: Rise Of An Empire album featuring Lil Wayne, Tyga, and Nicki Minaj. The producer of the song, David D.A. Doman, recently spoke to Vibe about producing the track and how it came together.

David Doman says the single, which is titled “Senile“, is a “real hard record” that will “kill the clubs”. He also mentions that Weezy F Baby is “spitting hard on the verse” and “going crazy on it”.

You can read exactly what the producer said about “Senile” and everyone’s verses on it below. I can’t wait to hear this song!

VIBE: How did things transcend from being producer of your high school to getting into some professional, grade-A kind of work?
David D.A. Doman: It was definitely a gradual transition, and it definitely took a while. At the time in Chicago, there wasn’t a real industry like there is now. So I worked with local artists. My first major label placement as a solo producer was with 2 Pistols, it was a song called “Candy Coated Diamonds.” But my first singles and hits came with Tyga. I produced “Do My Dance” with Tyga and 2 Chainz, which just went gold. I produced Fabolous’ single with 2 Chainz “When I Feel Like It.” And now I have this Young Money single about to drop.

The “Senile” track is the big thing circled around you right now. Tell me how they enlisted you to be the producer of the track.
It’s an interesting story. Originally, it was going to be a single for Tyga, but when Nicki heard it, she went crazy over it and she’s like ‘Oh, I need to be on this joint.’ And then basically she was like ‘Man, we need to put Lil’ Wayne on this.’ Tyga thought it was a good idea too. And so it just kind of went from being a Tyga single to everybody feeling the record was urgent and that it had to get out there. So they were like ‘Tyga’s album isn’t coming out until summertime, so let’s put this out right now as a Young Money single.’

And what was your reaction to that, going from a Tyga single to a Young Money single just like that?
I love working with Tyga, I’ll always love getting Tyga singles ‘cause i think he’s a dope rapper. So obviously Tyga’s like a big rapper, but then to have two more big rappers on it, Nicki and Wayne — and Wayne’s obviously a legend — is a great honor. It feels real good. The thing that’s cool about it the record too is that the beat has a really unique sound to it. It doesn’t sound like a typical joint. So I think it’s going to get my name out there more as a producer to not just the industry people, but to fans in general.

You tweeted that ‘Senile’ is a “new sound” and that “everybody came dope.” Tell me more about what the record sounds like in comparison to what you or Young Money have done before.
It’s is a real hard record. It’s definitely gonna kill the clubs, and I think it’ll do well on radio. I don’t want to give away too much, but it just has kind of like a different sound. It’s got some crazy stuff going on in it. Everybody killed their verses. Tyga brought back that low tone that he’s famous for from ‘Rack City.’ Nicki absolutely murdered her verse too, she came really creative on it. Wayne went just totally crazy on the third verse. It’s definitely an ‘event record.’ You know, when you talk to some radio promoters, they’ll call certain songs ‘event records’ because they’re so many big names on it, it just becomes an event that the radio has to play.

So Wayne is spitting on this?
Yes. Definitely. Wayne is going crazy on it. Wayne is definitely going crazy on it. The thing that I love about this Wayne verse is — I can’t give away who said this, ‘cause I don’t want to step on anyone’s toes — but a certain famous producer heard the record and was like ‘Wow, that’s a whole new Wayne that I haven’t heard before.’ Wayne is spitting hard on the verse, but it’s still fresh. It’s not like this is the Wayne from five years ago, or this is Carter I Wayne. It’s real hard, he’s really spitting, but its fresh.

Did you get to work in the studio with them, or did you send the beat out?
I worked with Tyga in the studio; I work with him all the time. But I think Tyga brought it over to Nicki’s spot, Nicki heard it and loved it, and then they brought it over to Wayne.

Was anyone else from Young Money considered for the track, like Drake or Mack Maine?
That’s kind of who we all thought would be best on it. Drake’s amazing and Mack Maine is doing his thing, but we just felt like these three were the best fit for the track.

Have you heard any of the rest of the Young Money: Rise Of An Empire album?
I actually have not heard any of the other songs on the album.

It seems you have this great working relationship with Tyga. How did you two originally link up? What is it about you two that works so well together?
Yeah, I’ve been working with T for a really long time; it’s been like five years now. I think we’ve just always clicked musically. One of the first joints I ever sent him was “Lay You Down,” which went on his first album. But we had actually completed that song a couple years before his album came out; Wayne was on that one too. I don’t know, it like my sound has changed a lot over the past five years, and his sound has too, but we’ve just kind of always been in the same zone in terms of the music we’re making. He’s always vibed with my beats.

  • young leek

    Lol all you kids are delusional. You seriously think Wayne’s gonna re-invent his self?? Lol don’t be stupid. Wayne’s been trash since Carter 3, SIX YEARS AGO. He showed signs of life with No Ceilins and has been terrible ever since.

    Do you imbeciles actually think Wayne is gonna magically become good again? After being in the game for 20 years?

    I’m sure you are the same people that think Kobe Bryant’s gonna be great again.

    Wayne is FAR past his prime. He’s been on the downfall for a while and it will continue until he retires. Ive been around music and hip hop much longer than any of you. He aint gonna become some sort of monster at this point in his career. Just watch.

    • xgoblin

      Why are you here??……go back to pornhub and continue watching Pinky on your moms laptop

      • young leek

        Truth hurts huh kid.

        • 9th ward G

          Who is your favorite rapper I just wanna know

          • young leek

            Nasty Nas. the king of rap.. kid.

            • Glenn

              Real I could understand that but do you think every album nas has put out has been perfect and I’m a big nas fan but his last album was average to me it was boring and the same ole shit one he not the king of rap he is top 5 tho but you hating on Wayne when every album he has put out has been good except 2 rebirth and inahb2 the carter 4 wasn’t perfect but it was decent 7.5/10 and Wayne is the greatest mixtape rapper of all time so you need to stop talking that bullshit like he ain’t got the most 1 billboard hits like this nigga Wayne didn’t have the highest grossing hip hop tour ever by himself until it took jay z and kanye together to beat him and it took the carter 4 a week and a half to go platinum and that album sold more than nas last album and watch the throne so stop hating and go eat a dick

              • Malik

                I actually think Wayne might still have that touring record

        • neesha

          yo pussy ass will be the first 1 on here once the single drop! ol’ closet fan ass nigga lol

          • young leek

            I might come on here, so I can laugh and show you dumb fucks that I was right.

            wayne is DONE. dude is trash. fucking lyrics are awful

            but i understand why all you kids think hes god, you’re all 13-15 years old with idiotic adolescent brains.

    • Freebandz

      Nigga swear he a hip hop critic lol

      • derrick 215

        really though lmao

    • Young Money Wayne fan

      just another typical hater us Wayne fans don’t give a damn what you think if you don’t like wayne why the hell are you on his fan website so you can take your opinions roll em into a ball put it down ur throat in choke on it kill ya self obviously you a secret Wayne fan if you are on his fan website and just hating because you see other niggas hatin nobody in the game spit bars like Wayne and uses them killer metaphors not to be on Wayne dick cuz even if I wasn’t a Wayne fan I wouldn’t denie that nigga can spit his ass off he never fell off he just stop trying because he done it already he aint got shit to prove no more

    • derrick 215

      Lmfaooooooooo nigga who tf you think you are? better yet, who tf you tryna be? talking like you ms. chleo the fortune teller or like you’re GOD. Lmao you’re a NOBODY! Just a typical troll that hates wayne and wants attention. you’re probably praying wayne wont do well on these future projects because he’ll dominate AGAIN and outshine ya fav rapper(s). Nigga wayne is a household name he can stand still and people will flock to him he could sneeze on the fucking track and people LIKE YOU WILL run and listen just to hear it. Therefore he’ll always be in his prime hoe nigga. Take yo no life having ass off the net and finish watching ya mama take a shower through the crack in the bathroom door you fucking loser

    • JayHighAss

      You sound like a 50 year old rapper that never made it smh & now u wanna talk shit bout wayne just cause he’s still on top c4 went 4x platinum c4 singles all went 1x platinum & above … Women Lie, Men Lie Number don’t just reminder that

    • Malik

      If the is anything Lil Wayne does after all his albums is reinvent his self listen to all his album in a row there very diverse but similar only cuz it’s Lil Wayne, also all the legends still rapping in the game are past their prime. And as I sit here and look at your comment, it kinda looks as if you’re a hater as if you don’t want Wayne to even be “monster” in the game which is stupid to say since it’s LIL WAYNE who will always be a “monster” in the game

  • Frank
