Ghostface Killah, Bulletproof Wallets (2001)

Ghostface Killah: “‘The Sun’ or ‘The Watch’ were my favorites on Bulletproof, but they didn’t make the album. And the slow song I had with Ruff Endz on it, ‘Love Session.’ I liked that.

 

Barry White didn’t want to clear the sample. He didn’t want me to use it.

 

“With ‘The Watch,’ Barry White didn’t want to clear the sample. He didn’t want me to use it. And it was like, ‘Damn, yo. I love you, B.’ And RZA, he couldn’t find the fuckin’ sample for ‘The Sun.’ Motherfuckers get high, and he didn’t know where he put it at, like, ‘Yo, I can’t find the sample.’ So I was assed out.

“‘Flowers,’ the first ‘Flowers’ that we had on it that came out on the mixtapes before the album dropped, we couldn’t use that sample either. Basically, all my favorites didn’t even make the album. If it would’ve had those on there, it could’ve matched up with Supreme and them niggas.”
