Ramona Park Broke My Heart album. During an interview with Big Boy, the Long Beach rapper revealed Baby recorded his verse free of charge after meeting at a Motown Records event.

And you already know, he can charge whatever he wants. Its funny because I met him at a Motown thing. We was cool and we aint really talk like that. And I was like, Lil Baby would sound good on this.
