Juicy J: “Yeah Pimp C got out of jail he liked that song so much he said he just wanted to redo that whole thing. Just wanted to use that same beat, that SAME BEAT. And shit—it worked. Pimp C was like, ‘It's gonna be jamming, watch what I tell you, I want that SAME BEAT, it's gonna be JAMMING!” Every time Pimp C said that, it was jamming. And he knew his music. Whatever he said was gonna blow, it'd actually happen.”

“And Sony wouldn't clear it. Sony wouldn't clear [Three 6 Mafia’s verses]. It's like when we won that Oscar. Everyone trying to step in our way of us doing things. I thought that was a real stupid mistake not to clear that. We was in the video. I was really pissed about that. I was like, ‘Shit, the song is hot, UGK are our brothers, man.’ I was kind of bitter over that when they did that. But man, it's all good.... label politics bullshit. That was straight bull. But it's cool man, it's over.”
