Producer: DJ Toomp
T.I.: “I remember, I think it was The Source or XXLor one of those magazines, they rated my first album not like I hoped. I'm saying to myself, ‘These people don’t know what they are listening to and they don’t know what they are listening for. Let me set the record straight. Let me separate myself from the rest of these cats. You can’t tell me what’s right about this.’
That’s one of my favorites, definitely one of the most memorable from the album. - T.I.
“That was one of those records that demanded the attention of people immediately. That’s one of my favorites, definitely one of the most memorable from the album. The subject matter, the tempo, the beat, lyrics; it’s ghetto hood. It made people say, ‘Wait a minute. This man thinks he's got it, but you could tell it was authentic because everything he is saying sounds true. I believe it. I don’t know this guy, but the way he is talking I feel like I should know him. Why don’t I know who this guy is?’”
DJ Toomp: “That’s a lot of people’s favorite record. 'Look What I Got' is one of the records that’s a celebration. He was really speaking for all of us on that record. New deal, new cars, new cribs, just being able to do more. He just felt good.”
