DJ Toomp Tells All: The Stories Behind His Classic Records

Pastor Troy "Ridin Big" (2003)


Album: By Any Means Necessary
Label: Universal Records

Dj Toomp: “I think Boyz In Da Hood originally had 'Ridin Big.' I gave it to them and Pastor Troy around the same time. But I liked what Pastor Troy did to it more than what they did to it.

“I first met Pastor Troy about a year after that 'No Mo Play in GA.' Around that time I was like, 'Damn, who is that dude?' I mean, I’m from Atlanta, I use to know everybody that came up out of here. But he was that new dude. Once we met the vibe was incredible, he was hella cool.

“For 'Ridin Big' I had sampled the 'Mack' soundtrack. And it ended up being a great record.”
