Large Professor:“The one that everyone likes I think is the ‘Extra P. Remix’ with the long movement. What happened was, I did the other one, with the Jungle Brothers cut, ‘That’s what it is,’ and Com got back to me, and was like, ‘I like it. But I want something different. [This remix you just did] is more B-Boy, hip-hop. I want something in an iller zone.’

 

Com got back to me, and was like, ‘I like it. But I want something different. [This remix you just did] is more B-Boy, hip-hop. I want something in an iller zone.’

 

“So I was like, ‘Aiight, cool.’ So I went back, and came back with some crazy, zoned-out movement shit. And I sent that one, and he was like, ‘Yeah, that’s what I’m talkin’ about.’ So I was happy, man, [that I met the challenge and Com liked it].

“And that was when I first met him. He rolled through for the remix. We were in the City. That was dope. That was a nice session. He did the vocals over, and flipped the verse [with a few different lyrics]. He signed my album, like, I was in there in fan mode. Yeah, [New York] definitely [embraced him].

“I like the second [remix] better. It was on some zoned-out shit, and that’s where I was at that time.”
