Rook: "We wanted it to be better but also different than the other two. There was pressure. It took us a long time to come up with our concept. Basically, we had [many] variations of that song. When we first came up with the music, it took us at least six to seven months to complete. We had to actually write the score, find the right orchestra, the right players, and we had to find somebody who could record it correctly. It's not like we would do the track and then send it somebody else to arrange it. We [did the] arrangements ourselves.
“The thing is, we didn't know 100% if people would like it or not. Like, it was so dope but it was so different. When it leaked on the Internet, it became a worldwide trending topic on Twitter. It’s crazy and it’s a testament to great music. The 'Maybach Music' [series] is something you can't take away from us because we kind of changed the game of hip-hop. Not a lot of people do that. There is probably a handful of producers that can say they have done it. Like, Dre, Timberland, The Neptunes, you know what I'm sayin'? It's an honor for us."
