Action Bronson: “I had just woken up [at Alchemist’s house] and it was about four in the morning. And I woke up to this sound, and it was that beat. And I got up and I was like, ‘Holy shit.’ And I just started writing right away, [and then we recorded it right after]. That was that.
“The thing is, when you record with Al at his house, you gotta live on his schedule, or else you’ll never get any work done. [His schedule is] stay up ‘til you pass out, wake up whenever, eat whenever, and at any time, anything could be done. We [recorded around the clock].
“We [had enough songs that we] could have put out an album after three days. But we just continued on, and kept going at it and working and working and working. We almost did forty songs. When you get in a zone, you can’t really stop. You don’t say, ‘We’re gonna stop at ten,’ or, ‘We’re gonna stop at fifteen.’ You keep creating and creating and you pick the best out of the lot.
“At the end of the day, I’m just a fucking one of a kind, and so is Al, [and that’s what that title represents]. We’re just some rare chandeliers. You can’t find us everywhere. You gotta go to the south of Latvia for that shit.”
