“Fake ID” ft. Q-Tip, Large Professor & Havoc (Prod. by The Produce Section)
Arguably the most important ‘statement’ record on MOD2. I remember being in Q-Tip’s kitchen and us joking around, that’s how I came up with the chorus. In the same juncture of time, I had begun building with Chin Beats of The Produce Section on us potentially working together. I went to my man Ed Roc’s studio in Queens and searched through my iTunes for something to rap to and came across the beat. Once I did the chorus, I immediately came up with the raps. I played it for Q-Tip and he loved it. He said he would jump on it, which got me brainstorming. I wanted this to be the reincarnation of [Main Source's] “Fakin The Funk” so I met with Large Pro and he did the hook for me. So now I got Q-Tip & Large Pro on one joint but it needed just one more element. By this time I had dropped “Wax Museum” which has Havoc and I talking. We met up and he was immediately sold on the idea and the rest is history.
