Producer: Deric "D. Dot" Angelettie
Album: Life After Death
Label: Bad Boy

Too $hort: “[We hooked up] through Bad Boy. Biggie had specifically requested me for his album, for a song [saying] 'the world is filled with pimps and hoes.' He said, 'I want Short Dog on this song.' B.I.G. knew what he wanted. Carl Thomas was on there. He had no name back then; he was just a guy with the hook. And Puffy hadn't rapped on a lot of songs back then—that might've been one of his first raps.”
