Diamond D:“That’s an old D&D connection. I produced a lot of songs at D&D Studios, and that’s where M.O.P. was recording. Foxxx was always there with Premier, and I would always see both of them, and I would say I was going to fuck with them in the future.

 
Me and Premier been cool since Lord Finesse’s first album. He did half, I did half, and Showbiz did a track or two.
 

“So when the time was right, Foxxx reached out to me and I blessed him with that. That was recorded in D&D. When I tracked it, Foxxx sprinkled it with his verses, but I wasn’t there when Danze did the hook.

“Me and Premier been cool since Lord Finesse’s first album. He did half, I did half, and Showbiz did a track or two.

D&D was like a second home to a lot of people, for real. There was an album called The D&D Project, and I did work on that too. D&D was like family.

“Foxxx got a new joint out right now. I just saw one of his posts on Twitter. He’s still doing his thing. I don’t have any crazy Freddie Foxxx stories, but there are a few floating around. [Laughs.] Foxxx is a real dude. There’s a lot of niggas like Foxxx. Niggas is cool and all, but everyone got a limit. But me and Foxxx, we’ve always been cool. There’s always been mad love.”
