Juicy J: “I met Wiz on Twitter. I was listening to some of his mixtapes, and I was like, man, this guy—I like his flow, he has an incredible flow man. And me and him talk about a lot of the same stuff. I smoke weed, he smoke weed. So I was like, ‘Hey, man, we gotta hook up and do a record together.’ I hit him on Twitter, and he's cool, man.

“We was talking about getting together and doing some music together, andI sent him a message about that ‘Black and Yellow’ song I heard. When he had first released ‘Black and Yellow,’ he released it on iTunes. I downloaded from iTunes.

 
I recorded my verse in a beat-up little hotel room in Canada, with a microphone with a sock over it.
 

“I was like, man, that ‘Black and Yellow’ song is just gonna be a smash, man. That's gonna be a smash!’ It's one of my favorite songs, man. I was singing it, you know. And he asked me to be on the remix, which is a blessing, man. And he sent me the files, the instrumental.

“I was in Canada, and I recorded my verse in a beat-up little hotel room in Canada, with a microphone with a sock over it. And my engineer had the Pro Tools on his laptop when we recorded my verse. Then I met up with Wiz in California, and then we did ‘In My Car.’

“And then, you know, we brothers now. And he asked me to jump on the ‘Erryday’ song, you know. He came in and did the hook, and vibed, just smoking in the studio and came up with it.”
