"The song was created by me and Dre, and it was just me singing on it. There were talks about Dre rhyming on it, but I thought it was just talk. Then cats started playing the song in New York just with my vocals on it. Then Jada got the track and rhymed on it himself because he liked it. They were playing it around New York like that. I think the first copies of the album, it was just Jadakiss. Finally Dre decided to lay a verse on it too. By the time we did the video, both of the cats were in the video, so it was brilliant. The first time I met Jadakiss was at the video shoot."
