Album: Bulworth The Soundtrack
Label: Interscope Records

DJ Muggs:Bulworth approached me to do something for the soundtrack, and they wanted a posse cut. And they were like, ‘Who do you want?’ And I was like, ‘Why? I can get anybody?’ At the time, we were getting $100,000 for a song. The budgets were ridiculous. So I was like, ‘Prodigy I’m feeling. KRS-One for sure. And Method Man.’

“Prodigy wasn’t in the studio, so I sent the reel to him. Method Man and KRS-One recorded the same day in New York. KRS ripped it. Then Method Man came in and sat down and did his vocals. That was the first time I saw someone do that, sitting on a high-ass stool, spitting.

“The last verse was supposed to be somebody else. I can’t remember who it was. But we ended up gettting Kam, a West coast cat to kind of juxtapose it. He came to New York and did the vocals out here actually. It ended up working out really well.

“I did a remix that didn’t end up coming out, but it was sick. They changed the song title, because originally it was called ‘Fuck a Rap Critic.’ The label was scared to do it. So we called it, ‘They Talk About It While We Live It.’ Method Man has said that line [on ‘How High’]. It was a good line.”
