Prodigy Wrote “Shook Ones Part II” While High On PCP
Angel dust is a hell of a drug. As it turns out, Prodigy was sprinkling dust in his weed when he wrote one of the most vicious verses in rap history (“Rock you in your face, stab your brain with your nosebone” is still one of the most amazing threats in the history of rap). “We wrote that in the crib high on drugs,” said Prodigy. “Probably weed, probably was some dust in there, mad 40s, getting twisted.”
In fact, he wasn’t the one only puffing dust blunts at the time. Method Man once told us that he was puffing that PCP when he wrote “Tical.” What’s that shit that they be smoking?
