On the intro of “Another” was Kim and B.I.G. really arguing?
Yeah. They do that shit a lot as an interlude, but that was really them just gettin’ frustration out too. With him bein’ married to Faith and the Kim shit so a lot of time we so called [had] them actin’ that shit out, but they was prolly sittin’ there really wantin’ to say that type of shit to each other ’cause that was real shit we was goin’ through. It was times both of them be in the session, she may have an idea he’s fuckin’ with her, but we don’t know. She knows that’s his wife so she beefin’. When you hear them interludes, it sounds like just an interlude, but this was actually real shit. Muthafuckas come up there with attitudes. Shit used to be goin’ down like that in them sessions, on the planes, on the buses. We was young it wasn’t our situation, we was youngsters. We be giddy and be laughin’ about it. We was high half of the time.
Did he ever have a girl that cheated on him? A lot of this track is about a girl that was creepin’ on him.
I’m sure he did. He probably had his share of shit you know at that time. We was too cool and young niggas to explore that type of shit, but I’m sure he experienced [it].
Did he know somebody named “Paula”?
We knew a bunch of Paulas. It was a gang of Paulas at that time. Not specifically that name, but there was a lot of jumps like that runnin’ about back there around the way.
