On Japan's interest in lowriding; "In 1992, I designed the Kizz My Black Azz album art for NWA co-founder, MC Ren. Shortly after, I took a trip to Tokyo, Japan. My mind was blown when I saw over 100 show-ready Impalas in just 10 days in the country. The Japanese are not playing around. They devote themselves to every detail when restoring a classic Impala. They shoot for perfection. In my opinion, they offer the biggest competition outside of California in the lowriding community."
