10. “Everyday” (Interlude) produced by Shyne and Harve “Joe Hooker” Pierre
Shyne: My homegirl Chelsea and Nia, that was the cool chicks who were in the studio wilding out. One thing about me, if you looking for honesty you gonna get more than what you bargain for. That’s how girls talk, if you ain’t piping ’em right they gonna go tell their friends. If you blowin’ ‘em down , they gonna tell their friends. That’s how it is in the streets.
11. “Bonnie & Shyne” (Feat. Barrington Levy) produced by Chucky Thompson
Shyne: I wanted Usher on that record. I had a whole different hook idea for that record. But what happen was when Harve got Barrington Levy to sing on the “Bad Boyz” shit I guess he freestyled and threw him on that and muthafuckas loved it. And when muthafuckas get into something it’s hard to be like, “But hold on…” It wasn’t a matter of taking [Barrington] off [of the record], it was a matter of, Yo, everybody saying this shit is crazy, I’m on my coconut shit anyway, so whatever we can ‘G’ with it.
Harve Pierre: [Using Usher] was just really a thought. Barrington Levy was all the way in Jamaica and he was knocking out different stuff for us. So basically once he did it, it was a done deal. There were probably several thoughts for that song, but Barrington Levy, he just fit it perfect.
12. “The Hit” produced by EZ Elpee, co-produced by P. Diddy & Mario “Yellow Man” Winans
Shyne: That was crazy. I’m more of a community activist, my life of crime is behind me. Back then that was the shit that I was really on. We were really on it like that. I don’t know what the statute of limitations is so, that might have really happened. That’s how we was really putting it in. That really happened. I don’t make records that graphic anymore because when I started making those records in the studio I might’ve just came from shooting somebody. I might’ve just came from doing what “The Hit” said. “The Hit” was [recorded] after the arrest… That did become an issue at trial they tried to use my lyrics and say how violent they were, but this is the United States of America.
EZ Elpee: That record, I wasn’t around the whole damn session and I walked in on it like, “Wow, he picked this beat.” And he just told a story on it. It was crazy. That was more my favorite on a hard level. I made that for him. I basically made something that I’d want Big to rhyme over.
