“My stylist [picked out the skull shirt from the video]. It was at the last minute. I was looking for a shirt to wear, and he's like ‘Yeah I got this cool little rock shirt man, you know. You can put on.’ I looked at the shirt, I was like, ‘Aww yeah, that is some different shit.’ I like to do different shit. Always wanted to do something that other persons wouldn't do.
So I saw a shirt like that, I was like, ‘Man, that's a crazy-lookin' ass shirt. I'ma wear that motherfucker.’ You know what I'm saying? We didn't get paid off that motherfucker neither, somebody else got paid off of that shirt. But that shirt was like THE SHIRT. Everybody was wearing that shit, man, it was crazy.
“I mean, our stuff is just dark, man, that's where we come from—the street, man. The streets of Memphis is dark. Everything, when you heard our music, it was like the pain and the hustle and the struggle from the street, and that's just what it was. Memphis is just a gangster town.... We watched a lot of horror movies man, we just liked a lot of stuff like that, horror movies that's dark, anything that was like, blood and guts, man. You know, blood and guts!”
