Colione: "This is how we learned our lesson with samples. That was actually a sample that we used and it basically couldn't be cleared. I can't recall the name of the sample. I think it was Donna Summer or some shit like that. I could be wrong. But anyway, I remember that we had to replay and rethink the whole thing.
"You really have to be a great producer to be able to rethink and come up with something because a lot of these artists fall in love with the way that it sounds in the original. We call it the 'Two Track Blues.' Whenever you change something up and then re-present it, it's like,‘Yo, what did you do to it? It sounds different, it's not the same.’ So you really have to go in and make it sound different enough that it's not someone else's music and original enough that the artist is going to like it. So we went into that and we put live strings, live horns on that. In my opinion the original, that had the sample, was a little better. There was a little something about that. I don't know if it was because the instruments were differently tuned, but we did it though. We had to pull it off. And the thing about it is that we had one day to do it."
Rook: "The funny thing about that song that a lot of people don't know is that the guitar that's in that song isn't actually a guitar. That's actually [Barto] singing. He's making a guitar sound with his mouth."
Barto: [Laughs.] "Oh yo, for real! I forgot about that! And it's so crazy that you mentioned that because that's proof right there that in the clutch, we had to get it done. We didn't have a guitar or nothing. And I was uncomfortable with singing, too. So I was like, 'Fuck it. Y'all make some room, I'm going to sing on it, put some effects on it, then y'all come back.'"
