The Alchemist: “That was Royce’s call. Royce told me they were working on a project needed some joints, I sent it to him, he said, ‘This is it.’ They smashed it up and let me hear it, I said great, and we pretty much just went from there.

“I sampled Evidence’s voice for the ‘Microphone’ part. I was doing the drums, basically I was just paying homage to that whole Rakim thing but I ended up keeping it in the beat because it sounded dope. So shoutout to Evidence for not suing me, nice guy. I gave him some weed or something and he got off my back.”
