He revealed this in a recent Hip TV interview.

Don Jazzy and Johnny Drille co-wrote “How Are You My Friend,” according to Johnny Drille, who also claimed that the Mavin CEO had the idea for the song.

In his words,

“For ‘How Are You My Friend’, the inspiration behind it was, Don Jazzy has just lost his mum like a couple of weeks prior.

“I guess, maybe this [the song] was his own way of talking about it because a lot of people were reaching out to him that he has not heard from like years. So, it just kind of hit him that, ‘Omo, I actually have these many friends that I have not spoken with for so long.’

“I also think that we are also in pretty touch times. The economy is crazy. A lot of people having it hard. A lot of people going through things in their lives that sometimes they don’t feel comfortable sharing them. And I guess, maybe that is why people have been able to connect with the song.”
