"Out Here Grindin" is the first single[1] from DJ Khaled's third studio album, We Global. The track features American hip hop artists Akon, Rick Ross, Young Jeezy, Lil Boosie, Trick Daddy, Ace Hood and Plies. It is produced by The Runners and co-produced by Akon and the hook is written by T-Pain.

Background[edit]

This song originally featured Lil Wayne in place of Young Jeezy. The version with Young Jeezy in place of Wayne is the official single version. Plies' verse has been moved to Wayne's part. The version with Jeezy's verse was recently released on Jeezy's mixtape "The Prime Minister". The reason for Wayne's verse being removed is allegedly because of him not being able to attend the music video shoot.

The song has 3 versions.
