Producer: Royce Da 5’9”
Album: The Bar Exam III
Royce Da 5’9”: “My little brother put me up on the Internet video of that Jon LaJoie dude from Comedy Central. He’s got this funny video, ‘Vagina’ that’s got a bunch of views. That’s pretty much how I was trying to spin The Bar Exam 3. For a lot of it, I wanted to take very popular Internet videos and make songs out of them. ‘Vagina’ was one of them, ‘Chocolate Rain’ and that was kind of a twist. I even had a Mr. Turner song that I started from a clip on YouTube, but never finished.
“We were just going to the studio every day and being silly. I did the beat. I took the video, looped a part of the beat, and added some percussion. I went and found the DMX sample, threw that in there. Jon Lajoie’s parts are hilarious. You’ve got to check it out!
“Sometime in the future [I want to produce more]. I sit and watch Em a lot when he’s making beats. I think I’ll probably follow that same stencil. Like the production method and have people come in and play instruments. But right now I’m just trying to really perfect rapping.”
