The irony of this record is beyond coincidental and definitely a blessing from The Creator. Just think for a second… Me & Jay Dee’s careers essentially started via [A Tribe Called Quest’s] Beats, Rhymes & Life. A lot people don’t know that we did a gang of records that weren’t released together. That was my dawg RIP. So when I was recording with my homie DJ Sammy Needlz, he had given me a few Dilla instrumentals just to vibe to. I went to Da Edge of Madness studio and pulled the beat up. It was immediately magic. It put me back in that zone I was in during ’96, but now I’m way more articulate. It was only a one verse joint when I left the studio but I couldn’t stop playing it. I told [my manager] Agent it was something special. I had Derek Pike do a poster that Monday and dropped it on the ‘net. I was stressing over something that day so I took a nap at like 7 p.m. I woke up with MAD messages on my phone as well as new Twitter followers. Funkmaster Flex had played it 10 Times!!! The next day he plays it 10 more times saying,”This is the hardest record NY!!! Consequence I NEED another verse” I talked to Flex that night and threw the second verse on it the same night and he made a MOVIE for a month straight!!! Thank you Jay Dee for the super assist!!!
