Juvenile: “I took that line from Turk’s verse on ‘I Need a Hot Girl’ as you may recall, I been knowing I need a hot girl. So I just wanted to get my little piece in and try to make something. Mannie was in the studio making a smooth track one night and I was just in there singing ‘Project Chick’ slowed down. And then singing his part of hot girl slowed down.
In the studio it was wasn’t no play, all work. We'd try to do five or six songs a day. It would sound like, ‘Damn, these dudes gotta be sleeping in the studio.’ We changed the music industry because people wouldn't release that many albums in a year.
“Mannie said, ‘That's a song.’ and we ran with it. Sometimes shit happens like that, on the fly. We didn’t think it was going to be a hit. But that's how we was. Sometimes the craziest shit you think of would be the craziest records. I mean ‘Boom, Boom’ we never thought that shit would blow up like that but it did. We had so much fun in the studios in those days we wouldn't worry too much. We was just happy off the fact that we was makin some money and we had people's ears. We could just do anything and they was going to listen to us.
“We played but in the studio it was wasn’t no play, all work. We'd try to do five or six songs a day. That's why you would hear a load of records. It would sound like, ‘Damn, these dudes gotta be sleeping in the studio.’ We changed the music industry because people wouldn't release that many albums in a year.
“You gotta give our props to Master P. Master P started it, he opened the door but we kind of came in and we did what P was doing. I wouldn't say on a bigger scale, I just think the things we did had more longevity in it than what they did.
“I’m not trying to take anything away from what they did because they was making a whole lot of noise. I just think our quality, as far as the way we went about things, was a little better. If I was wrong then Cash Money wouldn't be existing. So I've got to be right about that one.”
