Too $hort: “When I did that first song with Jay-Z ['Real Niggaz Do Real Things'], he really wanted to do that song with Scarface. I don't think Scarface jumped on it fast enough. I don't know what happened. I have no idea, but he called me. and I knew the whole story he wasn't like trying to bullshit me.

"He was like, 'Man I wanted Scarface for this song, I couldn't get him, would you do this for me?' And I did it. Later on, Jay-Z called me. You know the song, 'Just a Week Ago,' I don't rap on the song. I just come in and jump on the hook. He just, he already had the words and everything. I don't know, he wanted my voice on that.”
