Jermaine Dupri Tells All: The Stories Behind His Classic Records (Part 1)

Lil Kim "Not Tonight" (1997)

Producer: Jermaine Dupri
Album: Hard Core
Label: Atlantic

"I wasn't in the studio when that record was done, but B.I.G. wanted that beat bad because he loved everything I was doing with Brat. That beat was created because I think he wanted something that sounded like 'Live and Die for Hip Hop,' a Kris Kross record. He loved that and he wanted a record that had the same type of feel. I went back and actually made 'Not Tonight' for him. It wasn't called that, but the next thing I know it was on the Lil' Kim album and it was her song."
