DJ Toomp Tells All: The Stories Behind His Classic Records

T.I. "Heavy Chevys" (2001)


Album: I'm Serious
Label: Arista Records

DJ Toomp: “‘Heavy Chevys' was originally a Big Kuntry song. If Tip wasn’t at my house, sometimes Big Kuntry would just stop through and listen to tracks. Oftentimes he’d hear a certain beat and be like, 'Man, I got something for that!'

“I never really took Kuntry seriously at first when he’d say that, because he jokes so much. But after hearing 'Heavy Chevys' he was like, 'Man, give me that beat right there!' And I gave him beat, and I was say within a weeks time he came with the hook and everything. Tip heard the song and fell in love with it. He then decided to put it on the album.”
