Hit-Boy Verifies Existence Of Different "Sicko Mode" Version Using Full Intro Beat

Travis Scott’s blockbuster single “SICKO MODE” features a song-length version of the rhythm that was used in the opening seconds, according to Hit-Boy.

The multi-platinum producer disclosed that, despite not being present when Drake recorded his verse for the song’s opening section, Travis Scott called him after the recording session.

“I remember Travis first face timed me when he first did it, like the next morning after the session,” Hit-Boy said. “And he played it and it was extended, it was longer so…”

The song’s opening is handled by Drake over Hit-production Boy’s in the final version of “SICKO MODE,” which was included on Scott’s third and most recent studio album ASTROWORLD. Drake’s verse is then cut off at 0:59.

Both rappers would have been trading rhymes over the same beat in Travis Scott’s version, which they don’t do until the third portion of “SICKO MODE,” which was produced by Tay Keith.
