DJ Premier: "I've known them brothers for a while. I've known them for years when they were getting money on the streets and all that stuff. I know they put Pitch Black together from different MCs they were all helping to do other things, and it was a no brainer. That was another beat I did for Rah Digga, and she didn't use it. I played it for them, and right away they were like, 'Yeah, we like it.' I didn’t have the hook or the part that goes ‘realize it’s all real.’ But it sounded right, so I added that in there. The video did real well for that song, that got a lot of momentum, plus they were on Universal, but they didn’t know what to do with them, and they just ruined their project."
