What We Learned: Big Boi’s ‘Ask Me Anything’ Session On Reddit
Question: How did you and Dr. Dre get George Clinton for the Synthesizer on “Fo Yo Sorrows”? Did this stem from originally wanting to use a sample of his?
Answer: We called the mothership and he beamed himself down to the studio. There was no sample for “Fo Yo Sorrows”. I work with George because he fits the song. And we don’t like using samples because we like creating original music. It organically happened because we liked to create new music. Its easy to go out and sample a whole album. We can do that in 3 days.
