Royce Da 5’9”: “You will see a pig fly through hell with gasoline drawers on before you see me in skinny jeans. I was sitting around in my house one day and I thought to myself, ‘I have to write a song about skinny jeans because they’ve become quite the epidemic.’ And this is another one of my ‘super buzzed in the studio with the Patron’ silly ideas, ‘What if I just sing the whole song?’

“Me and my engineer got together, put the beat together, and I just went in there and started thinking of melodies. It’s one of those hit or miss things. I’ll have these ideas in my head and then I can’t get them to come across like they were in my head. But ‘Skinny Jeans’ was just one of those songs that came out exactly as I was hearing it in my head. I was able to bring that across. It just happened, it connected, and ended up being funny.”
