Prodigy Initially Didn’t Like Q-Tip’s Verse On “Drink Away The Pain”

Despite Q-Tip’s crucial contributions to the making of the album, Prodigy didn’t really appreciate his verse on “Drink Away The Pain.” Since Tip isn’t really a drinker, he discontinued the song’s liquor theme and opted to rap about clothes instead. “When I heard it I was like, ‘What the fuck is he rapping about? It doesn’t match the song,” said Prodigy. But thanks to the insistence of others, P let the verse ride and it eventually grew on him.
