Diamond D: “I had nothing to do with the song lyrically. All I did was send them some beats, and that was one of them. I came to the studio [in New York] and laid it. They went back to L.A. and did their vocals, then called me in to mix it. They structured it lyrically, and put the scratches and the Monie Love sample in the chorus. All I had to do was mix it.

I’ll never forget that shit. I was like, ‘Yo, what the fuck is going on?’ I guess he was eating something with it earlier that day. I’ve never seen someone walking around with a small bottle of hot sauce prior to that point, nor afterward. But that’s my dude.”
